Nest-site selection and niche partitioning among the Great Spotted Woodpecker Dendrocopos major and Middle Spotted Woodpecker Dendrocopos medius in riverine forest of Central Europe

Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major) Science Article 3 abstract We studied nest-site selection of the Great- and Middle Spotted Woodpecker inhabiting the riverine forest remnants of Central Poland. In addition to nest tree characteristics and location in relation to edge proximity, a comparison between nesting and random sites within the woodpeckers’ territories allowed a study […]

The effect of forest patch size on the breeding biology of the great spotted woodpecker Dendrocopos major

Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major) Science Article 1 abstract Forest fragmentation leads to a decrease in total forest area and patch size, which enhances predation pressure on birds’ breeding success. Existing data suggest that because hole nesters occupy relatively safe nest sites, their breeding success is not negatively affected by this process. However, fragmentation effects […]
