Lapwings find more food on areas which have damp soils throughout the summer. You can wet areas by raising ditch water levels or blocking field drains. Even small wet areas in field corners can create feeding areas for chicks.

Growing spring-sown arable fodder crops will benefit lapwings in areas which are largely improved grassland. Modern wildlife ecology often applies ecological theory to management and conservation of animals, but also includes theoretical studies on species that are considered wildlife.

The greatest strength of the book is that it teaches conservation planners how to access the vertebrate paleontological record, in order to extract the long-term demographic data that they require. it provides the building blocks required in order to achieve greater integration between palaeo- and neo-ecology and conservation biology .”Format: Hardcover.

One of the most striking and persistent ways humans dominate Earth is by changing land-cover as we settle a region. Much of our ecological understanding about this process comes from studies of birds, yet the existing literature is scattered, mostly decades old, and rarely synthesized or standardized.
