Long-term dynamics of quality and quantity of populations of birds of prey in forest of mountain Talysh
Anar T Mamedov and Qara T Mustafayev
The article describes the qualitative and quantitative dynamics of populations of birds of prey at the population level in the forests of Talysh for 1960-2016 years. Information is of comparative chronological character, allowing to install a multi-year trend and prospect of population of birds of prey in the forests of mountain Talysh. A large change in birds of prey in quantitative and qualitative terms in the mountain forests of Talish has been established. This is due to the fact that the forest intensively had been cut from all 4 sides. Unlike other mountain ranges, above the mountain forests of Talysh there are no high mountains but densely populated upland steppe people. Degree of startle of the birds from people was expressed more than in other regions. Settling of studied birds is low. Throughout our studies the reduction of population density took place, but slowly.
