Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Is intensive agriculture reducing mourning dove reproduction in the eastern US?

(American Ornithological Society Publications Office) Populations of some common bird species, including the familiar mourning dove, have been on the decline in North America. Agricultural lands can support bird populations, but agricultural intensification can also cause populations to decline -- so what role are changes in American agriculture playing for mourning doves? New research shows that relatively small changes in agricultural land use may be related to big changes in how many young doves are produced.
