Data from: Beaver activity and red squirrel presence predict bird assemblages in boreal Canada

Mariano J. Feldman, Marc J. Mazerolle, Louis Imbeau & Nicole J. Fenton
Wetlands and predation in boreal ecosystems play essential roles throughout the breeding season for bird assemblages. We found a positive association of beaver activity and a negative influence of American red squirrels (Tamiasciurus hudsonicus) on bird assemblages. We used a multispecies hierarchical model to investigate whether bird communities differ between two major wetland habitats in boreal Canada: beaver ponds and peatland ponds. In addition to including variables such as forest cover and latitude, we adopted...
