Urban Ecology Study Watches Birds On The Web

s affect the distribution of specific urban bird populations, Hostetler notes that while land use type (commercial, industrial, high-density residential, low-density residential, etc.) seems to only marginally affect the distribution of certain species, the largest factor that limits where birds are located is related to what homeowners and developers decide to plant in an area.

"What's exciting about this, is that the more information we get in, the more we'll be able to nail down the environmental factors," said Hostetler. "The public will be able to participate and see the evidence emerge."

In addition to the bird survey, the CAP LTER project also plans to conduct similar surveys of other urban animals and plants. A survey of insects and other arthropods is already underway.

The CAP LTER Bird Survey Database website is located at http://caplter.asu.edu/po12/ and can be searched by date, location and bird species, with a map search expected to be added by March 19. Volunteers interested in participating in the survey should first learn about survey requirements and procedures at the website and call Hostetler at 965-5841 to receive a transect assignment.
