Habitat and weather are weak correlates of nestling condition and growth rates of four UK farmland passerines

Agricultural intensification is believed to have driven declines of farmland bird populations and the invertebrates and weeds on which they feed. We investigated whether habitat and weather, as surrog...

Habitat characteristics affecting use of lowland agricultural grassland by birds in winter

Almost a third of the bird species designated as Species of European Conservation Concern exploit agricultural grasslands, yet few studies have focused on their use as foraging habitats for birds. Thi...

Non-inversion tillage and farmland birds: a review with special reference to the UK and Europe

This paper reviews the current knowledge of the effects of non-inversion tillage (NIT) on farmland birds and their food resources. NIT is a method of establishing a crop without using a mouldboard ploughing...

Delivering multiple ecosystem services from enclosed farmland in the UK

Here, we review the delivery of ecosystem services from Enclosed Farmland in the UK, and explore how the expected demands for ecosystem services might be met in the future. Most Enclosed Farmland is m...

Conserving nature out of fear or knowledge? Using threatening versus connecting messages to generate support for environmental causes

Threatening and connecting messages are two types of appeals commonly used to encourage conservation behaviors, yet little research has examined their psychological impacts and behavioral outcomes. This paper describes two studies contrasting these...

Ecosystem services provided by potential protected areas in the Cayman Islands: a rapid assessment

The most effective and efficient way to conserve natural areas is to prevent the conversion or degradation of intact habitat. With rapid population growth and continued development pressures, there is a recognised need...

Geographical variation in species population responses to changes in temperature and precipitation

Despite increasing concerns about the vulnerability of species' populations to climate change, there has been little overall synthesis of how individual population responses to variation in climate differ between taxa, with trophic level or geographically. To address this, we extracted data from 132...

Impacts of habitat change and protected areas on alpha and beta diversity of Mexican birds

Aims: To investigate how habitat change and different levels of protection interact to determine variation in the (alpha and beta) diversity of bird communities in three bioclimatic zones, considering the impacts of non-native species, and the contribution of these effects to global (gamma) diversity.

Biodiversity in the context of ecosystem services.

The term ‘biodiversity’ describes the diversity of life on Earth. Diversity can occur at a number of levels of biological organisation, from genes, through to individuals, populations, species, communities and entire ecosystems...
