Title: Carrying capacity for species richness as context for conservation: A case study of North American birds

Author: Hansen, Andrew J.; Phillips, Linda Bowers; Flather, Curtis H.; Robinson-Cox, Jim

Date: 2011

Source: Global Ecology and Biogeography. 20: 817-831.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: We evaluated the leading hypotheses on biophysical factors affecting species richness for Breeding Bird Survey routes from areas with little influence of human activities.We then derived a best model based on information theory, and used this model to extrapolate SK across North America based on the biophysical predictor variables. The predictor variables included the latest and probably most accurate satellite and simulation-model derived products.

Keywords: biodiversity, birds, conservation, human land use, MODIS, North America, primary production, carrying capacity, species energy theory, species richness
