The general objective of this project is to compare habitat use, occupancy dynamics, and phylogenetic trends of bird communities between sustainable productive ecosystems (SPEs) and other type of land uses located within a landscape managed by indigenous communities in Oaxaca, Mexico.
Expected outcomes from this project include:
(1) pioneering the use of multi-specific occupancy models for analyzing the effect of different productive ecosystems on Neotropical birds;
(2) training members of indigenous communities for monitoring birds;
(3) providing methodological and analytical tools to evaluate and manage SPEs to benefit indigenous communities and biodiversity as a whole.
