Effect of fragmentation on the Costa Rican dry forest avifauna

Article English OPEN
Barrantes, Gilbert; Ocampo, Diego; Ramírez-Fernández, José D.; Fuchs, Eric J.;

Deforestation and changes in land use have reduced the tropical dry forest to isolated forest patches in northwestern Costa Rica. We examined the effect of patch area and length of the dry season on nestedness of the entire avian community, forest fragment assemblages, ... View more
