The effects of increased wildfires on bird populations in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest of northern California.
Wildfire damage has increased globally in recent decades and is expected to continue this trend due to climate change. This study investigated the effects of increasing wildfires on bird populations in Shasta-Trinity, National Forest in Northern California. This study predicts that increasing wildfires will negatively affect some bird populations, with other bird populations benefiting from early successional post fire habitats.
