Distributing transmitters to maximize population-level representativeness in automated radio telemetry studies of animal movement

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Movement Ecology, Vol 11, Iss 1, Pp 1-12 (2023)

Abstract: Abstract Telemetry is a powerful and indispensable tool for evaluating wildlife movement and distribution patterns, particularly in systems where opportunities for direct observation are limited. However, the effort and expense required to track indivi...

Monitoring Effectiveness of an Operational Project on Two Threatened Landbirds: Applying a Before–After Threat Analysis and Threat Reduction Assessment

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Land, Vol 12, Iss 464, p 464 (2023)

Abstract: Human activities are at the origin of anthropogenic threats altering ecosystems at any hierarchical level. To mitigate them, environmental managers develop projects to obtain effective outcomes on biological targets of conservation concern. Here, we ca...

Genome-wide data reveal paraphyly in the sand plover complex (Charadrius mongolus/leschenaultii).

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Ornithology (Oxford University Press); 4/8/2022, Vol. 139 Issue 2, p1-10, 10p

Implications of habitat‐driven survival and dispersal on recruitment in a spatially structured piping plover population

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Ecosphere, Vol 13, Iss 7, Pp n/a-n/a (2022)

Abstract: Abstract Natal survival and dispersal have important consequences for populations through the movement of genes and individuals. Metapopulation theory predicts either balanced natal dispersal among regions or source–sink dynamics, which can dramaticall...

Cathemeral Behavior of Piping Plovers (Charadrius melodus) Breeding along Michigan’s Lake Superior Shoreline

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Birds, Vol 3, Iss 6, Pp 72-83 (2022)

Abstract: Shorebirds commonly exhibit cathemeral activity and commonly forage throughout a 24 h period. Conservation of endangered shorebirds should then extend to protection at night, yet little data exists on overall time budgets of such species at night. The ...

La jaunisse, le jaune et quelques oiseaux dans l’Antiquité classique

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Pallas, Vol 117, Pp 155-182 (2021)

Abstract: The subject of this paper is the link between jaundice and birds, according to the bond between the yellow colour and jaundice. For Ancient people, origin of the Greek name of this illness, ikteros, is the one of the kite (iktinos), whose eyes are yell...

Factors influencing the abundance of wintering western snowy plovers at Crown Memorial State Beach

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): California Fish and Wildlife Journal, Vol 107, Iss 3, Pp 249-259 (2021)

Abstract: Survival during the nonbreeding season, when mortality from food shortages and raptor predation is highest, influences shorebird population growth. These selection pressures, as well as anthropogenic influences, can shape wintering shorebird habitat us...

Adult piping plover habitat selection varies by behavior

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Ecosphere, Vol 12, Iss 12, Pp n/a-n/a (2021)

Abstract: Abstract Piping plovers (Charadrius melodus, “plover”) are beach‐nesting shorebirds that occupy their breeding range from about April to August. When plovers arrive on the breeding grounds, they select and defend territories, lay and incubate eggs, and...

Habitat‐specific behavior, growth rate, and survival of piping plover chicks in New Jersey, USA

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Ecosphere, Vol 12, Iss 10, Pp n/a-n/a (2021)

Abstract: Abstract Anthropogenic disturbance has been demonstrated to affect the behavior of beach‐nesting birds, yet the energetic consequences of recreational activities have received less attention. Because precocial chicks are often displaced as a result of ...

Long-distance dispersal in a recovering endangered shorebird population facilitates recolonization of historical nesting sites following decades of extirpation

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Journal of Field Ornithology, Vol 93, Iss 2, p 7 (2022)

Abstract: After extirpation from most of the Great Lakes by the 1980s, the Piping Plover (Charadrius melodus circumcinctus) did not nest again outside Michigan until 1998. The number of Plovers breeding in the region has gradually increased, with nesting locatio...
