Does logging and forest conversion to oil palm agriculture alter functional diversity in a biodiversity hotspot?

Anim Conserv 2014 Apr 9;17(2):163-173. Epub 2013 Oct 9.

School of Biology, University of Leeds Leeds, UK.

Forests in Southeast Asia are rapidly being logged and converted to oil palm. These changes in land-use are known to affect species diversity but consequences for the functional diversity of species assemblages are poorly understood. Environmental filtering of species with similar traits could lead to disproportionate reductions in trait diversity in degraded habitats. Read More

Survival on the ark: life history trends in captive parrots.

Anim Conserv 2012 Feb;15(1):28-53

Department of Biology, New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, NM, USA.

Members of the order Psittaciformes (parrots and cockatoos) are among the most long-lived and endangered avian species. Comprehensive data on lifespan and breeding are critical to setting conservation priorities, parameterizing population viability models, and managing captive and wild populations. To meet these needs, we analyzed 83, 212 life history records of captive birds from the International Species Information System and calculated lifespan and breeding parameters for 260 species of parrots (71% of extant species).
