Loss of habitat for a secondary cavity nesting bird after wildfire
Tree cavity dependent animals are sensitive to changes in cavity availability in forests. Fire is important in the long-term dynamics of cavity creation and loss, but there are few data on how fire impacts nesting resource availability for animals. We assessed the survival of 189 trees and 191 cavities used for nesting by an endangered secondary cavity nesting bird, the swift parrot Lathamus discolor, over a decade. A subset of monitored trees were burned in an uncontrolled fire. At the site of...[Show more]
