The ecological features of the booted warbler (Hippolais caligata) in the Baraba forest-steppe

  • V. M. Chernyshov


The ecological features of the booted warbler in the central part of its range were analyzed on the basis of the data that were collected in 1973-2005 in the vicinity of Lake Chany (south of West Siberia). Special attention was paid to the parameters of reproduction as the basis of adaptation of this species to habitat conditions.
