Abstract:Bird species and functional diversity patterns in seven urban woodlots of Guangzhou, China, were studied at designated times from November, 2013 to July, 2015. Presence and abundance of birds was recorded using standard line-transect methods, and the area of the region as well as the perimeter-to-area ratio (PAR) were calculated using the software ArcView GIS 9.3. The results were as follows: 1) Species accumulation curve of each urban woodlot increased quickly at first and then approached an asymptote or increased slowly; majority of the ratios of species richness recorded in each study site to estimated species richness were larger than 60%, indicating that sufficient sampling was conducted. 2) There were 53 bird species in total, and bird species and functional diversity changed across the seven urban woodlots. Specifically, the Haizhu Wetland Park harbored the highest number of bird species (39 species), followed by the Haizhu Lake Park (37 species), and other woodlots harbored less than 30 species; Pielou evenness index was very positively correlated with PAR, and bird functional divergence was very positively correlated with area, moreover, Pielou evenness index increased quadratically with PAR. No significant correlation was observed among other diversity index, area and PAR. Accordingly, there were no significant correlations between bird diversity index and area except bird functional divergence and area, possibly due to the main factors in determining bird species diversity in small scale were disturbance intensity, habitat heterogeneity and others.
