  • Understanding place as ‘Home’ and ‘Away’ through practices of bird-watching
  • This paper illustrates how the practices of bird-watching are integral to the making and remaking of sense of place as ‘home’ and ‘away’, to sustain identities beyond accepted categories of ‘dude’, ‘birder’ and ‘twitcher’. The creation
  • and application of different types of ‘bird-lists’ helps to explain the ways in which practices of bird-watching facilitate making sense of place as simultaneously ‘home’, ‘away’ and habitat, as well as the identity work of home-maker, citizen-scientist
  • and tourist. These insights into these leisure practices of bird-watching are drawn from analysis of data gathered from 21 people who actively bird-watch and reside on the South Coast, New South Wales, Australia.

  • Landscape and birds are an important cause of blocking wind power projects. This paper investigates in the South of France the question of whether birds and wind power can be part of a same landscape and what type of landscape this could compose
  • . The AA. focuse on the attachments that animals or landscape might develop or entice humans to develop. They show that the process by which such a wind power landscape is composed engages birds into successive translations, which ultimately translate bird
  • The bird faunas of two vegetation gradients ranging from open grassland to high forest were compared in southern France and Corsica. On the whole, species richness is lower (ca 30 %) in Corsica than on the mainland. However, a low bird species
  • richness does not characterize all Corsican habitats. Moreover, the bird communities of Corsican shrubby habitats are closer in their diversity and frequency distribution to mainland bird forest communities than to the bird communities of mainland shrubby
  • habitats. The differences are attributable to a broader habitat use by forest birds which formerly colonized Corsica (i.e. an increased niche breadth).

  • The avian colonization of Anak Krakatau, an emergent volcanic island, is described for the period 1952-1991 with emphasis on the resident land birds. The few species that had colonized the island by 1952 were destroyed in a volcanic eruption

  • The effects of the Alqueva Dam reservoir on the distribution of steppe birds (before and after flooding) was quantified using point-pattern analysis. Sampling points from the dam biological monitoring program, which included data from winter
  • and breeding seasons, were used. To quantitatively assess spatial patterns, the point-pattern was tested using a sequence of statistical methods. The results indicate a decline in the absolute abundance of steppe birds in both seasons, but it is more evident
  • Effectiveness of ecological units for stratification of bird habitat in Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve, Alaska
  • Alaska ; Bird ; Ecological inventory ; Ecology ; Fauna ; Habitat ; National park ; Vegetation
  • Point-count data from the bird inventory were used to test the ability of the ecological units to fine-scale vegetation types. The ecological units were a synthesis of geology, landforms, soils, and vegetation mapped at a scale of 1:250,000
  • ; the vegetation types were based on vegetation within 50 m of the sample points. Nonparametric multivariate statistical tests showed that both ecological units and vegetation types provide useful and complementary information about bird habitat selection
