Linking landscape composition to predator-specific nest predation requires examining multiple landscape scales



Data were used to analyze patterns in predator-specific nest predation on shrubland birds in Illinois as related to landscape composition at multiple landscape scales. Data were used in a Journal of Applied Ecology research paper of the same name. Data were collected between 2011 and 2014 at sites in east-central and northeastern Illinois, USA as part of a Ph.D. research project on the relationship between avian nest predation and landscape characteristics, and how nest predation affects adult and nestling bird behavior.
