Are Fragmented Forests a Threat to Birdlife?
Due to human activity, the forests along the coastline of French Guiana are becoming increasingly fragmented, in other words, they are being divided up into ever smaller, isolated patches. What impact is this having on biodiversity, and more specifically on birds? French researchers are conducting an investigation, in a bid to influence local policies.
