dc.description.abstractNorthern Bobwhite (Colinus virginianus) evolved under natural disturbance regimes that constantly changed and recreated the environment. Due to anthropogenic influences, many ecosystems are different today and bobwhites likely are affected in unpredicted ways by disturbances. I investigated how disturbance size (i.e. prescribed fire size) affected bobwhite survival, reproduction, and abundance. Furthermore, I investigated nest habitat selection at multiple scales and described the ecology of bobwhites on an altered agriculture landscape. My results suggest that fire size does affected bobwhite demography and should be considered by habitat managers. I o er evidence that bobwhites fair better on pastureland than previously thought.
