Correlation Between the Presence of Edible Plants and Birds

December 23, 2014

This project hypothesizes that bird population is more dense where edible plants are located in the New York Botanical Gardens. http://macaulay.cuny.edu/eportfolios/seminar3posters/files/gravity_forms/1-f14ea90e75361cb91bd42582a860ee01/2014/12/Correlation-between-the-presence-of-edible-plants-and-birds.pdf Jasmine Boone, Ashwini Chawla, Sabrina Kostusiak Professor Brian Ford, ITF Bronwyn Dobchuk-Land City College birds, plants, diversity, agriculture

Comparing Bird Diversity between The New York Botanical Garden and Central Park

December 18, 2014

Central Park and the New York Botanical Garden are home to over 200 different species of birds, providing them with food and natural habitat to flourish in. Bird diversity is important to us because birds aid in seed dispersal and enhance our city’s aesthetic value. The birds also provide ecosystem services. http://macaulay.cuny.edu/eportfolios/seminar3posters/files/gravity_forms/1-f14ea90e75361cb91bd42582a860ee01/2014/12/PM-Birds.pdf Stephin Jose, David […]

Avian Adaptation in an Urban Environment

December 12, 2014

“We hypothesize that there will be a direct relationship between the amount of greenspace in a park and the amount of bird species in said park, working with the null hypothesis that the same number of bird species will be present in each park, regardless of the amount of greenspace.” http://macaulay.cuny.edu/eportfolios/seminar3posters/files/gravity_forms/1-f14ea90e75361cb91bd42582a860ee01/2014/12/Avian-Allies-Represent-Google-Slides.pdf Kyle Williams, Allegra DePasquale, […]

Possible Correlation Between New York State County Income and Quantity of Bird Species Observed

December 11, 2014

The 62 counties of New York State exhibit tremendous disparities in terms of their economic circumstances. Wealthier counties have greater means to own and maintain more gardens, parks, and fields than poorer counties. Such habitats attract birds during their migratory and nesting periods. Consequently, one may logically assume that the greatest number of bird observations […]

Pigeon Census: Ship High in Transit

December 11, 2014

In this study, our group explores the possibility of a correlation between the elderly population in Manhattan and pigeons found in two given areas- 13th Street to 23rd Street on 5th Avenue, and 59th Street to 69th Street on Madison Avenue. These areas were specifically chosen for their high or low elderly population densities, with […]
