Descripción
In Mediterranean Europe, after the widespread afforestation and forest maturation following a large-scale decline in traditional uses, many forest bird species have expanded their ranges in the last decades of the 20th century. In order to disentangle the processes mediating recent range changes of forest birds in the Mediterranean region of Catalonia (NE Spain) and to provide forest management guidelines, we studied the relationships between variations in forest bird species richness at 10x10 km and forest landscape dynamics associated with land abandonment (afforestation and maturation), fires and management. The widespread afforestation and forest maturation appeared to counteract the potentially negative effects of fires on species richness, being the impact of forest management on birds much smaller than the impact of the former. Nevertheless, forest practices of moderate intensity and an adequate management of landscape connectivity pattern may be beneficial, allowing species to better face range changes associated with global change
