From: Reducing human pressure on farmland could rescue China’s declining wintering geese

Fig. 4

Geese select farmland and wetland/grass near their roosts and experiences relatively low human pressure. Lines indicate response curves, and grey areas and bars 95% confidence intervals. Human pressure refers to the standardized human footprint with a range of 0–50. a-b: tundra bean geese (Anser serrirostris, TBG) in the stopover region Northeast China Plain (NCP); c-d: greater white-fronted geese (A. albifrons, GWFG) in NCP; e-g: TBG in the wintering region Yangtze River Floodplain (YRF); h-i: GWFG in YRF. RoostDist: distance to roosting sites; Wetl/Grass: wetland and grass; *: the relatively low selection probability reflects extrapolation beyond the actual level of human pressure (mean = 17.04 and standard deviation = 4.37) based on the relatively little geese presences on farmland
