1. On starlings and farming: population decline, foraging strategies, cost of reproduction and breeding success
Sammanfattning : The European Starling Sturnus vulgaris as many other farmland bird species has been declining during the last decades. The cause of these declines is generally believed to be changes with in agricultural methods affecting breeding and survival of birds. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Agricultural intensification has led to dramatic population declines among many farmland bird species. Negative effects of intensive farming in terms of decreased local habitat quality or structural simplification of farmland landscapes have reduced both reproductive outcome and winter survival of many species. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Agricultural intensification has caused severe declines among biodiversity in European farmland over the last half century. The transformation of the agricultural landscape has led to reduced availability of key resources such as food, nesting habitat and shelter. LÄS MER
4. Biodiversity conservation in agricultural landscapes : linking farmers and agri-environmental measures to farmland birds
Sammanfattning : Agricultural industrialization alters rural landscapes in Europe, causing large-scale and rapid loss of important biodiversity. The principal instruments to protect farmland biodiversity are various agri-environmental measures (AEMs) in the EU Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). LÄS MER
5. Matching a changing world - the importance of habitat characteristics for farmland breeding Eurasian curlew
Sammanfattning : Where animals are and what they do, is the result of a continuous cost-benefit analysis of available alternatives. Choices have to be made, for example when settling in a breeding territory after migration, when foraging conditions change, when humans change the landscape, or when a predator approaches the nest.
