- ... Riparian areas in western North America have been characterized as centers of avian diversity, yet little is known about the ways that native species in streamside habitats are affected by development nearby. To address this issue, we examined patterns of habitat use by birds during the 1995–1997 breeding seasons at 16 lowland riparian sites representing an urban‐to‐rural gradient. As development ...

- ... Increasing demand to conserve biodiversity in managed forests necessitates better understanding of the impacts of forestry practices on the species‐rich herbaceous layer. We compared composition and diversity of understory vegetation, environmental features, and stand structure of forests in New Brunswick, Canada, under four different management scenarios, including: young (24–66 yr) naturally reg ...
