This subject focuses on population and community ecology of birds. It explores temporal and spatial variations in population size, population dynamics, population limitation, the structure and demography of populations and competition within populations. Presence and absence of species within communities, changes in populations and communities due to threatening processes and strategies for conservation are also examined. Students completing this subject will have an advanced understanding of the abundance and distribution of birds and how these interact with natural and anthropogenic factors.
