То the question of measuring stability as qualitative characteristic of dynamics of bird communities

Matzura A.V.

This article is devoted to the problem of measuring stability of bird communities. To determine degree of the stability we offer to apply mathematical analysis. The main ideas are to present matrix of the bird community and use the standard deviation of a sample as a stability index. This method was applied to the island waterbird communities of Azov-Black Sea region. The outputs are discussed and conclusions on the further use are given.
