    Description

    In order to determine the effects of selective logging on pine-oak forest?s bird communities in central-western Mexico, we gathered information through 10-min point counts in plots without wood extraction and sites logged at different times in the past (1, 4, and 8 years). We did not find evidences to argue for effects of logging on bird communities; the study plots showed very similar diversity values, and similarity index values among them were high. Feeding guild groups showed different patterns after logging, and particular resident species were the most affected. Migrants as a group did not show a negative effect; none showed significant differences among treatments, and some species were detected more frequently in logged sites.
