Spatial and typological structure and organization of bird communities in the Lower Amur region


Exemplified by the Lower Amur region, the bird distribution over various habitats from undisturbed to urban ones is described on the basis of the results of long-term investigations. The trends of territorial changes in overall characteristics of bird complexes are established. The spatial-typological structure of bird complexes and the main structure-forming environmental factors are revealed, and their role in the organization of bird communities in the Lower Amur Region is estimated.
