Agricultural habitat-type and the breeding performance of granivorous farmland birds in Britain

Conservation concern about granivorous birds has led to the implication of changing agricultural practices as causes of widespread population decline. We investigate relationships between breeding per...

Agricultural intensification and farmland birds: new insights from a central European country

The relationship between agricultural intensification and a decline in farmland bird populations is well documented in Europe, but the results are mostly based on data from the western part of the continent...

Agricultural intensification and the collapse of Europe's farmland bird populations

The populations of farmland birds in Europe declined markedly during the last quarter of the 20th century, representing a severe threat to biodiversity. Here, we assess whether declines in the populat...

Agricultural land-use and the spatial distribution of granivorous lowland farmland birds

Current agricultural practices are believed to have contributed to the declines of many farmland bird species, especially seed-eaters, throughout Europe. We investigated associations between the spati...

Agricultural management and climatic change are the major drivers of biodiversity change in the UK

Action to reduce anthropogenic impact on the environment and species within it will be most effective when targeted towards activities that have the greatest impact on biodiversity. To do this effectively we need to better understand the relative importance of different activities ...

Agriculture as a key element for conservation: reasons for caution

We agree with Wright et al. (2012) that it is important to consider species of open habitats when assessing the impact of agricultural policy on landscapes where such species occur. However, there are at least four reasons why conservationists...

Agri-environment management for corncrake Crex crex delivers higher species richness and abundance across other taxonomic groups

This study tested whether agri-environment scheme (AES) management for corncrakes in the UK is associated with higher diversity or abundance of non-target flora and fauna relative to similar land outside...

Albatross conservation: from identifying problems to implementing policy

Delivering science into a policy arena in a strategic and effective manner is critical to the conservation and protection of species. In many cases, however, those whose primary aim is the scientific study of a particular species or habitat...

Albatross foraging behaviour: no evidence for dual foraging, and limited support for anticipatory regulation of provisioning at South Georgia

Many pelagic seabirds are thought to regulate reproductive effort by adopting a dual foraging strategy, alternating or mixing short foraging trips over local shelf waters (maximising provisioning rate...
