Effects of urban pesticide applications on nesting success of songbirds


, : Effects of urban pesticide applications on nesting success of songbirds. Bulletin of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology 48(3): 352-359

Between May and August 1986 and 1987, a study was conducted on private properties in Winnebago, Outagamie and Calumet counties around the city of Appleton, Wisconsin, USA, to determine the effects of tree care, using the pesticides acephate, carbaryl and diazinon, on the nesting success of the robin (Turdus migratorius) and the mourning dove (Zenaida macroura).
