A Review on Indian Avian Community Structure and its Related Factors
In order to ascertain the impact of various factors on the avian community structure in India, elaborative analysis of relevant literature was carried out to extract the impact of real factors that affect the avian community structure. The prominent factors that have direct bearing on the birds include urbanization, extensive use of insecticides and pesticides, physiochemical parameters, vegetation, type of habitat, climate change, environmental contamination, nesting pattern and weather. Avian abundance is also affected by other factors such as migration, natality and mortality or due to changes in habitat structure and distribution pattern of food resources.
