First results from the supplementary feeding project conducted by our team have just been published in PLOS ONE. The article, entitled "Unforeseen effects of supplementary feeding: ungulate baiting sites as hotspots for ground-nest predation”, shows an increased nest predation risk for ground-nesting birds in the vicinity of ungulate supplementary feeding sites. The results may have important implications for the conservation of threatened ground-nesting birds, such as grouse species. The article can be downloaded here. Media cover of the article can be seen here.
