La perdiz pardilla en el Reino Unido: estado de la poblacion, investigacion, gestion y perspectivas Durante los ultimos cincuenta anos, los efectivos de la perdiz pardilla (Perdix perdix) han descendido catastroficamente en el Reino Unido. Por el contrario, el Programa de Recuento de la Perdiz de la GWCT (Fundacion para la Conservacion de la Caza y la Fauna Salvaje) presenta un 81% de aumento desde el ano 2000 en los lugares del Reino Unido en que interviene. En este estudio exploramos los antec...

Restauracion de la caza de la perdiz pardilla: un importante progreso en el estudio de Sussex, Reino Unido Desde hace una generacion se conoce la base cientifica de la gestion de la perdiz pardilla. Esta incluye el control de los depredadores de nidos, la provision de material para la nidificacion, tener suficientes insectos para alimentar a las crias, y un control adecuado de la caza. Mas recientemente tambien se ha considerado importante proveer alimento para las aves adultas y y habitats para...

Cada perdiz cuenta, tecnicas utilizadas con exito en el programa de conservacion de cria en cautividad para la perdiz pardilla en Irlanda Entre los anos 1998 y 2001, los ultimos restos de la poblacion salvaje de perdiz pardilla (Perdix perdix) de Irlanda se enfrentaban a una extincion inminente, con una poblacion primaveral estimada de 4–6 parejas, y una poblacion otonal de 22–24 aves. En el 2002 se inicio un programa de cria en cautividad con dos parejas de perdices pardillas. En el ano con may...

The control of generalist predator populations is increasingly adopted as a managementtool to combat declines in ground-nesting bird populations. However, compensatory pre-dation by uncontrolled species frequently occurs, so determining the relative impacts ofdifferent predatory species, and hence the relative benefits of their control, can be diffi-cult. Islands, with their reduced faunas, provide natural experimental units for investigat-ing specific predator–prey interactions in detail. We studi...

Summary 1. European agri-environment schemes (AESs) have so far delivered only moderate biodiversity gains. However, recent work has demonstrated that under a range of circumstances AESs can return substantial benefit both to biodiversity and ecosystem service delivery. This Special Profile brings together 13 papers that point the way to greater effectiveness. 2. One study in this Special Profile suggests that AES options modified by experience of working on the ground (i.e. guided by adaptive m...

Abstract In this study results from land managed by volunteer members of the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust's Partridge Count Scheme (PCS) were used to determine how well Environmental Stewardship (ES) and its predecessor schemes have performed for one intensively studied farmland bird, the grey partridge ( Perdix perdix ) between 2005 and 2008. The individual agri-environmental scheme (AES) options that PCS members chose to implement were classified into groups based on the habitat that t...

Summary 1. An 8-year-field experiment on moorland in northern England manipulated the abundance of legally controllable predators whilst maintaining consistent habitat conditions. Subsequent changes in both the breeding success and abundance of five ground-nesting bird species were monitored: lapwing Vanellus vanellus, golden plover Pluvialis apricaria, curlew Numenius arquata, red grouse Lagopus lagopus scoticus and meadow pipit Anthus pratensis and the abundance only of snipe Gallinago gallina...

Abstract Agri-environment schemes were introduced in the mid-1980s. Their primary objectives have developed from initially aiming to hold back intensification towards stimulating environmental enhancement. The introduction of Entry Level Stewardship (ELS) in England represents a third stage in seeking to extend the coverage of schemes across the majority of agricultural land. This aims to influence land use along the whole of the intensive margin. The ELS offers a wide range of options for which...

Bagaza virus (BAGV; synonymous to Israel turkey meningoencephalomyelitis virus, ITV) is a relevant arthropod-borne epornitic flavivirus. In its first emergence in Europe (southern Spain, 2010) BAGV caused an outbreak, severely affecting red-legged partridges and common pheasants. The effects (pathogenicity, role as reservoir host) of BAGV in other European phasianids are unknown. To fill this gap, grey partridges were experimentally infected with BAGV. The clinical course of the disease was seve...

Background The grey partridge (Perdix perdix) and the common pheasant (Phasianus colchicus) are galliform birds typical of arable lands in Central Europe and exhibit a partly dramatic negative population trend. In order to understand general habitat preferences we modelled grey partridge and common pheasant densities over the entire range of Lower Saxony. Spatially explicit developments in bird densities were modelled using spatially explicit trends of crop cultivation. Pheasant and grey partrid...

The contamination of the eggs of farmland birds by currently used plant protection products (PPPs) is poorly documented despite a potential to adversely impact their breeding performance. In this context, 139 eggs of 52 grey partridge Perdix perdix clutches, collected on 12 intensively cultivated farmlands in France in 2010–2011, were analysed. Given the great diversity of PPPs applied on agricultural fields, we used exploratory GC/MS-MS and LC/MS-MS screenings measuring ca. 500 compounds. The l...

Abstract Non-native honeybees historically have been managed for crop pollination, however, recent population declines draw attention to pollination services provided by native bees. We applied the InVEST Crop Pollination model, developed to predict native bee abundance from habitat resources, in Maine's wild blueberry crop landscape. We evaluated model performance with parameters informed by four approaches: 1) expert opinion; 2) sensitivity analysis; 3) sensitivity analysis informed model opti...

The population of Grey Partridge is decreasing worldwide as a result of anthropogenic activities. Increased agricultural production, requiring homogenous farming landscapes and increased use of pesticides are believed to be the main factor causing population declines in the Grey Partridge. Actions to enhance Grey Partridge populations are available; however, those actions are vain if the acceptance to conduct them is low. To gather information about acceptance among farmers, hunters and the Coun...

Summary A widely recognized challenge in applied ecology is the gap between the knowledge generated by scientists and uptake by practitioners. Bridging this gap requires reciprocal and iterative flows of information from both scientists and practitioners prior to research initiation and beyond its completion. Yet current approaches to knowledge exchange ignore the complexity of translating different types of knowledge and the constraints that might limit effective knowledge exchange. Knowing who...

Studies leading to decision-making for environmental licensing often fail to provide accurate estimates of diversity. Measures of snake diversity are regularly obtained to assess development impacts in the rainforests of the Amazon Basin, but this taxonomic group may be subject to poor detection probabilities. Recently, the Brazilian government tried to standardize sampling designs by the implementation of a system (RAPELD) to quantify biological diversity using spatially-standardized sampling u...
