Abstract:

This study was carried out in Rome from 1991 to 1999. On a total of 47 urban parks and suburban woods, 22 woodlots were occupied by Great Spotted Woodpeckers during the breeding period. All woods sized up than 50 ha were occupied by woodpeckers. On a five year scale, territory stability was positively correlated with wood size. The requirement of wooded area per territory was slightly higher in urban parks (6.7 ą 2.7 ha, n = 10 woodlots) than in suburban woods (5.7 ą 1.3 ha, n = 5), and was negatively correlated to the vegetation cover. Wooded area per territory in Rome was higher than in neighbouring deciduous oak woods, suggesting that urban habitats are low-quality for breeding Great Spotted Woodpeckers, probably due to vegetation features and isolation from other woodland patches. Maintaining mature stands of natural vegetation with old and dead trees in larger urban parks could be useful to encourage the occurrence of Great Spotted Woodpecker in cities.
