Abstract: The distributions and abundances of birds within oak woodland communities of California are the results of geologic events leading to the formation of the Mediterranean-type ecosystem, and of more recent anthropogenic impacts that have altered the landscape. These human-wrought disturbances to oak woodlands likely are affecting population parameters and distributions of birds throughout California. Because little is known of bird-habitat relationships in oak communities, however, the actual effects of these land-use practices on birds are unknown. Here we present a framework for the study of birds in the oak woodlands of California. The principal objectiv
