Zusammenfassung: The expansion of urban environments is a key driver of global biodiversity loss and is likely to have an increasing impact in the future. By altering both the biotic and abiotic environment, the conversion of natural habitats into urban environments can profoundly affect the composition and persistence of avian communities. Yet, whilst urban environments present many challenges to birds – including the loss of natural habitats, and exposure to novel predators and stressors such as noise, light, and air pollution – they also present many opportunities. Milder climates and the availability of new resources has enabled some species to flourish. Although often regarded as highly degraded habitats, these complex ecosystems provide exciting opportunities to study ecological and evolutionary theory. With 20% of all bird species occurring in cities, it is essential that researchers, conservationists, and policy makers now come together to share their knowledge on the impacts of urbanisation on birds, and how avian diversity can be maintained in a changing world.
