Bird Community Changes in a Young Pine Plantation in East Texas
Abstract:Breeding birds were censured annually from transects in a young pine plantation from age two to six years to assess the impact of stand development on the bird community. Bird abundance and species diversity rose consistently with stand age. Increased complexity of the bird community was associated with increased height and complexity of the developing stand.
