The use of citizen science to identify the factors affecting bird-window collisions at residential housesDownload
Every year a large number of birds die when they collide with windows. The actual number however is difficult to ascertain. Previous attempts to estimate bird-window collision rates in Canada relied heavily on a citizen science study that used memory-based surveys which may have potential biases....
A basic tenet of comparative studies of the brain is that the larger size of any neural structure is related to the need for progressing more complex or larger quantities of information, the so call Jerison's “principle of proper mass”. Base on this principle, variation of the absolute and...
Zooarchaeological Analysis of Avian Skeletal material in Neolithic and Early Bronze Age Mortuary Contexts, Cis-Baikal, SiberiaDownload
During the Neolithic and Early Bronze Age in Cis-Baikal, Siberia, human groups inhabiting the region interred their deceased with a variety of objects, including modified and unmodified avian skeletal elements. Archaeological excavation of graves in the Shamanka II, Lokomotiv, and Ust’-Ida...
Indices of Biological Integrity (IBIs) estimate the biological condition of an ecosystem by measuring biological metrics that predict underlying environmental stress. I evaluated the use of IBIs developed from 5 biotic communities at 81 semi-permanent/permanent natural and constructed wetlands. ...
Effect of Pairing Status on Use of Space by Territorial Willow Ptarmigan (Lagopus lagopus): Bachelor Males Choose Life on the EdgeDownload
One function of territorial defense may be to facilitate mate guarding by resident males. To assess the importance of mate guarding in territoriality, we examined the spatial pattern of intrusions by male Willow Ptarmigan(Lagopusla gopus) on the territories of other males and we compared use of...
Project Report 1999-6
Several studies have documented elevated rates of nest predation for passerines and grouse in small forest patches and near anthropogenic edges. We examined patterns of predation on artificial nests in aspen (Populust remuloidesw) oodlots and fencerows surrounded by agricultural land in Alberta....
