Landscape Supplementation in Adjacent Savannas and its Implications for the Design of Corridors for Forest Birds in the Central Cerrado, Brazil

Tubelis, Darius; Cowling, Ann; Donnelly, Christine

Description

We examined landscape supplementation (sensu [Oikos 65 (1992) 169]) by forest birds along forest/savanna boundaries in central Brazil to: (1) verify the role of savanna vegetation in providing resources to forest bird communities; (2) suggest minimum amounts of savannas to be conserved within corridors, to provide adequate foraging habitat for forest birds outside reserves. Transect counts parallel (n=64) and perpendicular (n=64) to forests were conducted in eight savannas (cerrado sensu...[Show more]
