Breeding habitat modelling of the Little Bustard Tetrax tetrax in the site of community importance of Cabrela (Portugal)

Little Bustard (Tetrax tetrax) Science Article 3

abstract

Aims: The Little Bustard often occurs in fragmented open landscapes in southwest Portugal, where agricultural fields are spaced with forest stands and shrublands. In these areas species abundances and distribution patterns are poorly known, and there is almost no information about the effects of human activities on the species. In this study we present the first results on the distribution and abundances, as well as macro-habitat modelling for Little Bustard displaying males.Location: Site of Community Importance of Cabrela, an area included in the national list of sites
