Avian Urban Ecology

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews studies on urbanization, i.e. the adaptation of living organisms to urban habitats. It examines four different indicators of the extent of urbanization; whether at least one population had higher density in urban than in rural habitats, whether populations breeding in city centres existed, the difference in population density between urban and nearby rural habitats, and the estimated year of urbanization as assessed by amateur ornithologists. It also discusses the role of interspecific interactions (predation) and large populations and geographic ranges in urbanization. The chapter concludes with directions for future studies.

Keywords:   birds, urbanization, urban habitats, adaptation, predation, geographic range, population size
