    Mixed Species Bird Flocks: A Bibliography


    Chris Merkord
    • Author: Eben Goodale and Hari Sridhar

      Mixed-species flocks of birds are exciting models for community ecology because they can be found throughout the world, and thus by studying communities with different evolutionary histories one can search for general patterns in community structure. Here we list those descriptive studies that we have encountered that are in terrestrial landscapes.

    Here we list those descriptive studies that we have encountered that are in terrestrial landscapes. Please note that by “terrestrial landscapes” we exclude ducks, pelagic species, seabirds, shorebirds and wading birds. We also have some notable weaknesses in the database that we’d like to correct:

    1. Theses are generally not listed (especially if they have been subsequently published)
    2. Articles in languages other than English may be missed

    If you have an addition to the database or a correction of any kind, please e-mail us. Collectively, we also have many of the articles listed here in electronic form, and should you wish for copies, again we encourage e-mail.

     

    If this document was helpful to you, we ask that you reference it, as follows:
