For this, he drew on the expertise of birdwatchers across the US, Canada and Europe and asked them to report on the complexity and volume of the passerine calls they heard.
Thus, the spatial pattern for the passerines exhibited greater constancy over a 20-year period than that found in the simulation model with only temporal environmental variability.
Average levels of genetic variation within greenfinch populations are extremely low as compared to most other passerine species (Barrowclough 1983; Corbin 1983).
In both the shorebird and the passerine analyses, snowmelt completion date (our surrogate climate variable) and habitat type (landform) were not included in the top models.
In order to estimate the potential of some Passerine birds as bioindicators of forest fragmentation in the Atlantic forest, we have conducted this research in the mountains of Rio de Janeiro state, southeastern Brazil, from October 2001 to July 2005.
Total passerine nest success was greater on burned than on unburned plots (Fig.

This little passerine (16 cm in length) uses the beak to tear apart large prey items held down with the foot (Snow, 1964).
We hypothesized if wind facility operation decreased passerine fitness by making wind turbine locations more suitable for associated predators and parasites [such as Brown-headed Cowbirds (Molothrus ater)], we would observe: (1) the rate of brood parasitism increasing with decreasing distance from turbines, (2) a decrease in nest success with a decrease in distance to turbines, or (3) both.
