Abstract

Gradual edges are beneficial because their rich blend of vegetation provides shelter and food for many kinds of wildlife. Gradual edges are also important for upland game birds like the Northern bobwhite quail, which rely on shrubs to escape predators. In winter, they spend a majority of their time 70 feet or less from shrubby cover. A number of other species also thrive along such edges, including the Eastern cottontail, and many species of songbirds.
