Central Appalachian subregion climate change vulnerability species assessments Excel Spreadsheet
These results are a compilation of climate change vulnerability assessments in the northern-most portion of the LCC, covering the area from New York south to ...
Managing Forests for Birds Video Series
A new video series by the Ohio Bird Conservation Initiative highlights the importance of proper forest management in improving a diversity of habitat for birds ...
Bhuta, Arvind
Partners in Flight 2016 Landbird Conservation Plan Released
Scientists Document Widespread Declines, Urgent Need for Conservation of Landbirds in U.S. and Canada. Report calls for unprecedented partnerships across ...
Nations Celebrate Centennial of Landmark Migratory Bird Treaty
Agreement between U.S. and Canada responsible for many successes in bird conservation; will help us meet challenges that lie ahead.
Conservation in the face of climate change: The roles of alternative models, monitoring, and adaptation in confronting and reducing uncertainty
The broad physical and biological principles behind climate change and its potential large scale ecological impacts on biota are fairly well understood, ...
Central Appalachian Climate Change Vulnerability Species Assessments
These results are a compilation of climate change vulnerability assessments in the northern-most portion of the LCC, covering the area from New York south to ...
Contemporary Evolution of Reproductive Isolation and Phenotypic Divergence in Sympatry along a Migratory Divide
Understanding the influence of human-induced changes on the evolutionary trajectories of populations is a fundamental problem [1, 2]. The evolution of ...
Bird population trends are linearly affected by climate change along species thermal ranges
Beyond the effects of temperature increase on local population trends and on species distribution shifts, how populations of a given species are affected by ...
Bergmann’s rule and climate change revisited: Disentangling environmental and genetic responses in a wild bird population
Ecological responses to on-going climate change are numerous, diverse, and taxonomically widespread. However, with one exception, the relative roles of ...
Changes in Avian and Plant Communities of Aspen Woodlands over 12 Years after Livestock Removal in the Northwestern Great Basin
Riparian and quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides) woodlands are centers of avian abundance and diversity in the western United States, but they have been ...
Energetic and biomechanical constraints on animal migration distance
Animal migration is one of the great wonders of nature, but the factors that determine how far migrants travel remain poorly understood. We present a new ...
Conservation Biology: Predicting Birds’ Responses to Forest Fragmentation
Understanding species’ ecological responses to habitat fragmentation is critical for biodiversity conservation, especially in tropical forests. A detailed ...
Effects of drought on avian community structure
Droughts are expected to become more frequent under global climate change. Avifauna depend on precipitation for hydration, cover, and food. While there are ...
Ecological and Evolutionary Responses to Recent Climate Change
Ecological changes in the phenology and distribution of plants and animals are occurring in all well-studied marine, freshwater, and terrestrial groups. These ...
Effect of habitat area and isolation on fragmented animal populations
Habitat destruction has driven many once-contiguous animal populations into remnant patches of varying size and isolation. The underlying framework for the ...
Changes in Wind Pattern Alter Albatross Distribution and Life-History Traits
Westerly winds in the Southern Ocean have increased in intensity and moved poleward. Using long-term demographic and foraging records, we show that foraging ...
Animal Versus Wind Dispersal and the Robustness of Tree Species to Deforestation
Studies suggest that populations of different species do not decline equally after habitat loss. However, empirical tests have been confined to fine ...
A Large-Scale Deforestation Experiment: Effects of Patch Area and Isolation on Amazon Birds
As compared with extensive contiguous areas, small isolated habitat patches lack many species. Some species disappear after isolation; others are rarely found ...
Temporal dynamics of a commensal network of cavity-nesting vertebrates: increased diversity during an insect outbreak
Network analysis offers insight into the structure and function of ecological communities, but little is known about how empirical networks change over time ...
Impacts of mountaintop mining on terrestrial ecosystem integrity: identifying landscape thresholds for avian species in the central Appalachians, United States
Reclaimed mine-dominated landscapes (less forest and more grassland/shrubland cover) elicited more negative (57 %) than positive (39 %) species responses. ...
A phantom road experiment reveals traffic noise is an invisible source of habitat degradation
Decades of research demonstrate that roads impact wildlife and suggest traffic noise as a primary cause of population declines near roads. We created a ...
Appalachian Mountains Joint Venture Technical Committee Meeting
Annual meeting of the AMJV Technical Committee, comprised of federal, state, NGO, and university partners to discuss science needs, barriers, and other ...

Recovery: Farm Bill Provides Hope for the Cerulean Warbler
With funding from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) available from the Farm Bill’s Regional Conservation Partnership Program the Appalachian ...
Bringing Back Diversity in Eastern Forests for Landowners, Wildlife
What do biologists look for in a healthy forest? A diversity in the ages and composition of trees and occasional breaks in canopy to allow sunlight to reach ...
Bald Eagle Nest Monitoring Program Launched by Maryland Bird Conservation Initiative
The recovery of our national symbol, the Bald Eagle, is considered one of the greatest conservation successes of the 20th century.
