In Fig. 2, we outline three possible scenarios of how fire may impact Cape Sable seaside sparrow populations based on our understanding of the species and previous work (Pimm et al., , Taylor, , Werner, ).In all three cases, we expect the dependent variable (i.e. some measure of sparrow population size or demography) to be reduced immediately following fire Cited by:   In the meantime, the sparrows that vanished, remain vanished, and central London is a sparrow-free zone – more or less. I say that because from time to time, there are reports of the odd colony.

It all was too much for the Dusky Seaside Sparrow to take. By only six Dusky Seaside Sparrows were left alive in the entire world.

Except for a few populations in Florida, it is almost never found away from tidal marshes along the immediate coast. With a patchy and disjunct habitat, this species has evolved a number of well-marked local races.
