Time‐integrated habitat availability is a resource attribute that informs patterns of use in intertidal areas
(Ecological Monographs, 2018-05-30)
In dynamic environments, resource availability may change by several orders of magnitude, over hours to months, but the duration of resource availability is not often included as a characteristic attribute of resources ...
Mechanisms That Generate Resource Pulses in a Fluctuating Wetland
(PLoS ONE, 2016-07-22)
Animals living in patchy environments may depend on resource pulses to meet the high energetic demands of breeding. We developed two primary a priori hypotheses to examine relationships between three categories of wading ...
Determining habitat quality for species that demonstrate dynamic habitat selection
(Ecology and Evolution, 2015-11-19)
Determining habitat quality for wildlife populations requires relating a species' habitat to its survival and reproduction. Within a season, species occurrence and density can be disconnected from measures of habitat quality ...
Physiological Condition of Juvenile Wading Birds in Relation to Multiple Landscape Stressors in the Florida Everglades: Effects of Hydrology, Prey Availability, and Mercury Bioaccumulation
(PLoS ONE, 2014-09-03)
The physiological condition of juvenile birds can be influenced by multiple ecological stressors, and few studies have concurrently considered the effects of environmental contaminants in combination with ecological ...
Linking Dynamic Habitat Selection with Wading Bird Foraging Distributions across Resource Gradients
(PLoS ONE, 2015-06-24)
Species distribution models (SDM) link species occurrence with a suite of environmental predictors and provide an estimate of habitat quality when the variable set captures the biological requirements of the species. SDMs ...
