Aggressive behaviour by other species can be an indication of environmental change for example, if a previously abundant resource is suddenly limited (natural processes such as drought and flood can enormously impact a food supply that an ecosystem has come to rely on). Colony: a group of birds nesting together in close association, such as a Purple Martin colony. The collection can be accessed by students, faculty, researchers, and members of the public I sold mine back and deeply regret it, looks like I'll have to pay the full price to buy again; which I will because it's definitely worth it.

By the 1920s the Journal für Ornithologie included many papers on the behaviour, ecology, anatomy and physiology, many written by Erwin Stresemann. Here there is only space to name Bontius, Clusius, Hernandez (or Fernandez), Marcgrave, Nieremberg and Piso, 6 whose several works describing the natural products of both the Indies - whether the result of their own observation or compilation - together with those of Olina and Worm, produced a marked effect, since they led up to what may be deemed the foundation of scientific ornithology.' Ray's interest in ornithology continued, and in 1694 he completed a Synopsis Methodica Avium, which, through the fault of the booksellers to whom it was entrusted, was not published till 1713, when Derham gave it to the world.' The chief merit of the latter work lies in its forty plates, whereon the heads and feet of many birds are indifferently figured .2 But, while the successive editions of Linnaeus's great work were revolutionizing natural history, and his example of precision in language producing excellent effect on scientific writers, several other authors were advancing the study of ornithology in a very different way - a way that pleased the eye even more than his labours were pleasing the mind.

While the ideas of species, their identities and geographic distribution began to be developed, the focus gradually shifted to the study of the living bird, or studies of the life history of birds. [13] The study of birds in their habitats was particularly advanced in Germany and as early as 1903, had established bird ringing stations. In addition to species and genera, Linnaeus also recognized other classificatory groups, or taxa (singular taxon ), which are still used; namely, order, class, and kingdom, to which have been added family (between genus and order) and phylum (between class and kingdom).
