The birds of the steppe environments face a number of different threats relating to habitat degradation (such as agricultural intensification, land abandonment afforestation), and the vast majority of species have unfavourable conservation status. Conservation measures require an understanding of species habitat preferences and their occurrence patterns and must be applied at the relevant spatial scales. This study, investigated the habitat selection and resulting distributions of the steppe bird community in southern Portugal, one its strongholds.
