Integrating Climate Change and Predation Risk with Wading Bird Conservation Research in North America

Abstract

In the next century, wading birds will have to deal with the cumulative impact of climate change, human population growth, and the recovery of avian predators. Conservation areas, established under former climate conditions and when there were fewer people and predators, might be inadequate to maintain wading bird populations in the future. We assess the potential effect of climate change and increased predation, and provide hypotheses as a framework for future work in these areas.
