Title:

Predicting population sizes and priority conservation areas for 10 endemic Namibian bird species

Publication Year:
1999
Abstract:

Namibia's avifauna includes at least 14 species currently classified as national endemics or near-endemics. Line transect sampling of 10 of these was undertaken over 7 months in 1996. For all species, significant regression relationships were obtained between calculated bird density and environmental variables (altitude, rainfall and vegetation type), and these relationships were used to predict bird abundance in each extant combination of environmental variables.
