Impacts of Birdwatching on Human and Avian Communities

In this published article (PDF file) by the same title, Cagan H. Sekercioglu, a professor of biology at Stanford University’s Center for Conservation Biology, focuses on the impact of international birdwatching tours, given that "Birdwatchers form the largest group of ecotourists, and are, on average, well-educated, wealthy and committed." In this engrossing article, Dr. Sekercloglu identifies 10 positive and 7 negative impacts of commercial eco-birding tours and offers 10 recommendations for "optimal" birdwatching under these conditions.

You're welcome! Surfing the Internet is sort of like birding in new territory--something new, unsuspected, and exciting waiting to be found around every corner (or with every click of the mouse).
