Recently, several studies provide information on the influence of vineyard management practices on bird assemblages in the vineyard ecosystem. This talk will highlight bird diversity and reproductive success, birds as beneficials, bird use of roosting and nesting boxes, and the value of maintaining individual oak trees in central coast vineyards. Agro-ecosystems play a critical role in sustaining biological diversity.
