Oak-Pine Conversion and Bird Populations in the Missouri Ozarks

Two replicate 25-acre plots were established in each of three forest types in the Missouri Ozarks--oak, oak-pine, and pine--to determine the stands' relationships with bird populations. Forty bird species were observed on the plots during the course of a year (1976-77). The oak and oak-pine stands supported the greatest number of bird species during the winter; the oak-pine had the greatest during the summer. Each forest type provided habitat for some bird species that were not present in the other types. The bird population would not be devastated by conversion of hardwood stands to pine in the region, but would change in composition to one more typical of the earlier successional pine stage.
