Modelling the effects of forest fragmentation on certain species of forest-breeding birds

Modelling the effects of forest fragmentation on certain species of forest-breeding birds The influence of forest fragmentation was assessed on the abundance of six forest-breeding bird species.

Abstract

The influence of forest fragmentation was assessed on the abundance of six forest-breeding bird species. The study area (2327 sq Km) was located in south-west France. The forest cover, extracted from a Landsat MSS scene, was first reduced to a grid of 5865 quadrats, each 650 by 650 m. Two values were attributed with each quadrat: Quadrat Forest Cover (QFC), expressed in percent; and a local measure of forest fragmentation - the Neighbouring Forest Cover (NFC) - expressed on a 0–1000 scale. The distribution of six forest-breeding species was sampled on 556 quadrats.
