Habitat-suitability modelling to assess the effects of land-use changes on Dupont’s lark Chersophilus duponti: A case study in the Layna Important Bird Area

Duponts Lark (Chersophilus duponti) Science Article 1 abstract Habitat-suitability modelling is being increasingly used as a tool for conservation biology. Although studies at large spatial scales are more appropriate for reserve design and management, there is a scarcity of published work on local, high-resolution applications of such models. In this work we develop high-resolution habitat […]

Current status of the threatened Dupont’s lark Chersophilus duponti in Spain: overestimation, decline, and extinction of local populations

Duponts Lark (Chersophilus duponti) Science Article 2 abstract The European population of Dupont’s lark Chersophilus duponti, restricted to Spanish steppe, was estimated to be 13,000 pairs in c. 50 populations in 1988. There is, however, recent evidence that this number was overestimated because of the previous use of line transects for estimating population sizes. In […]

Two new calls from the Dupont’s Lark Chersophilus duponti and imitations by other alaudids: ecological and monitoring implications

Duponts Lark (Chersophilus duponti) Science Article 4 abstract The Dupont’s Lark Chersophilus duponti isone of the rarest Palearctic passerines, whosedistribution is confined in Europe to the remainingsteppe plateaux and lowlands of the Iberianpeninsula (Cramp, 1998). As a consequenceof recent data that revealed that Spanishpopulations are much smaller than previouslyestimated, the species is currently considered
