Vegetation and Landscape Variables Predicting the Occurrence of Shrubland-Dependent Songbirds in Anthropogenic Shrublands

Principal Investigator(s):

Matthew D. Tarr

Institution:

University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension

Project Term:

2015 - 2016

A total of $10,900 was received from the Blake-Nuttall Fund for the purpose of providing a field ornithological research opportunity for two University of New Hampshire (UNH) undergraduates during summer 2016. Students were to assist with bird surveys and vegetation measurements during the second year of a 2-year study investigating the distribution of eight focal shrubland-dependent bird species breeding within anthropogenic shrublands in southeastern, NH. The purpose of this study was to determine if there were differences in the likelihood of each focal species occurring in each shrubland type, and to determine whether vegetation conditions or the landscape composition surrounding shrublands could be used to predict the occurrence of each focal species within shrublands.
