Are boreal birds resilient to forest fragmentation? An experimental study of short-term community responsesDownload
Abstract: We studied the effect of habitat fragmentation on the richness, diversity, turnover, and abundance of bleeding bird communities in old, boreal mixed-wood forest by creating isolated and connected forest fragments of 1, 10, 40, and 100 ha. Connected fragments were linked by 100 m wide...
