Reproductive responses of an apex predator to changing climatic conditions in a variable forest environment
MetadataShow full item record
Apex predators are ideal subjects for evaluating the effects of changing climatic conditions on the productivity of forested landscapes, because the quality of their breeding habitat depends primarily on the availability of resources at lower trophic levels. Identifying the environmental factors that influence the reproductive output of apex predators can, therefore, enhance our understanding of the ecological relationships that provide the foundation for effective forest management strategies in a variable environment. To identify the determinants of breeding-habitat quality for an apex predator ...
