Abstract: I examined the patterns and processes that determine Bobolink (Dolichonyx oryzivorus) distribution and abundance. First, I tested the hypothesis that visual openness could explain area sensitivity, the pattern of species being disproportionately absent from smaller habitat patches. I compared Bobolink density and occupancy to a novel openness index, patch area, and edge effects. Our resu... read more
