Postfire Characteristics of Existing and Potential Black-capped Vireo (Vireo Atricapillus) Nesting Habitat on the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, Oklahoma

Greenman, Todd M.
Each chapter of this thesis is complete for publication in a specific scientific journal. Chapter I is written in the style of Conservation Biology, and Chapter II is in the style of The Southwestern Naturalist. Additional data and study site maps are included in a 1995 report entitled "Effects of fire on existing and potential nesting habitat of the black-capped vireo (Vireo atricapillus) on the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge". This report can be obtained from either the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge, Oklahoma, or the Oklahoma Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit at Oklahoma State University. I greatly appreciate the guidance of Drs. James H. Shaw, Terrence G. Bidwell, and David M. Leslie, Jr. during my research. The outstanding scholarship of Jim Shaw was an inspiring example for me. I am also grateful to Joe Kimball of the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge for his assistance throughout this project. I thank my parents, Norman and Marion Greenman, for their extreme patience and support during my long college career. Finally, I thank my friend Marcus Koenen for helping in countless ways.
