New publication written by one of our colleagues
The Kentish plover (Charadrius alexandrinus) is a species with a wide distribution, but its European populations are declining. Its Asian populations are hardly surveyed and their size is poorly known. A recent scientific article by a senior lecturer of our department aimed to address this gap. In the study, the researchers estimated the potential distribution of the species in Kazakhstan, from which they inferred the population size. The article was published in the D1-ranked journal 'Ibis', co-authored by Grant C. McDonald and Ákos Bede-Fazekas.
