Abstract
  • Habitat loss is a primary threat to biodiversity in the present day, causing many species to become endangered or extinct (Cobb 2010). Migratory birds may be especially vulnerable to habitat loss, since they rely on the persistence of two quality habitats for breeding and wintering (Taylor and Stuchbury 2016). Biologists often dedicate their research to describing patterns of distribution and abundance of species based on habitat variables, which can inform management practices and conservation efforts. Research on the habitat preferences of species in decline is needed to help prevent future extinctions.
