Abstract

The species diversity (H’) of birds in the study area was related to the insects’ abundance by comparing the yielding capacity of crop lands in natural and enclosed plots. Scan sampling (Altmann 1974) method was adopted to record birds and the method of Pradhan (1991) was followed to estimate insects’ abundance.
