Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

91 Scopus citations


Examines habitat and nest-site selection in marsh-nesting species, concentrating on prairie marshes (central USA and Argentina) and tidal salt marshes (Atlantic coast), comparing the spatial and temporal overlap of the dominant bird species and discussing different responses to physical constraints (eg a lack of vertical and horizontal complexity, frequent storms and - in saltmarsh - daily tidal inundation). Particular attention is paid to nest-site selection in prairie cattail Typha marsh, pampas tule Scirpus californicus marsh and Spartina saltmarsh. -P.J.Jarvis
