Abstract

Human disturbance is one of the factors that reduce biodiversity. This study analyzes its effects on bird communities in four wetlands along the coast northwest of Naples. The community indexes used for the research (S, Shannon, NP/P, Species listed in the Italian Red Data Book) are inversely correlated to the disturbance index ID.
