Title
The impact of grazing animals on nesting success of grassland passerines in farmland and natural habitats: a field experiment
Author(s): Vaclav Pavel
Abstract: A study was made of the influence of trampling by grazing animals on the nesting success of real nests (meadow pipit, Anthus pratensis; water pipit, Anthus spinoletta; and skylark, Alauda arvensis) and simulated nests (caps from jam-jars filled by gr..[more]..
