Geographical generality of bird-habitat relationships depends on species traits

The environmental filtering process is often considered as static in ecological studies. However, growing evidence shows that species-environment relationships vary in space and time. In this study, we assessed to what extent bird responses to landscape components can be geographically generalised and whether differences in response generality can be explained by traits.
