    Description

    Impacts of oak-boring beetles in the Ozark region could produce major changes in forest communities of northwestern Arkansas resulting in loss of oaks replaced by other tree species. Because the extensive Ozark forests are a major source of surplus birds, alterations of forest structure producing changes in foraging opportunities for birds could have serious consequences. This study compared tree species usage while foraging in summer by year-round resident and summer resident migratory forest bird species. Extent of usage was compared to relative abundance of different tree species at each of six study sites. The results show that oak species were used by forest birds in greater proportion than their abundance at the sites.
