Evaluating impacts of subdivision designs on bird habitats by Mark Hostetler, University of Florida, introduces participants to a new online evaluation tool that evaluates impacts of landscape/subdivision designs on bird habitats. The goal of the “Building for Birds” online tool is to provide decision-makers with a way to evaluate different development scenarios and how they affect habitat for different species of forest birds that use fragmented areas. This tool allows decision-makers to manipulate amounts of forest fragments (urban/rural) and tree canopy (in built areas) and determine the best designs for conserving bird habitat. This evaluation tool is most useful for developments in already fragmented landscapes, where decision-makers are trying to decide on whether to conserve tree patches or tree canopies. Associated with this is a bird list of North American species that do or do not use urban/rural forest patches and tree canopy in built areas during breeding and migration seasons.
