Evaluating the effectiveness of overstory cover as a surrogate for bird community diversity and population trends

Pierson, Jennifer; Mortelliti, Alessio; Barton, Philip; Lane, Peter; Lindenmayer, David B


Landscape features are often used as surrogates for biodiversity. While landscape features may perform well as surrogates for coarse metrics of biodiversity such as species richness, their value for monitoring population trends in individual species is virtually unexplored. We compared the performance of a proposed habitat surrogate for birds, percentage cover of vegetation overstory, for two distinct aspects of bird assemblages: community diversity (i.e. species richness) and population...[Show more]
