Europe  is a continent that comprises the westernmost part of Eurasia that  contains about 700 species of birds. Europe is bordered by the Arctic Ocean to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the west, and the Mediterranean Sea to the south. To the east and southeast, Europe is  separated from Asia by the watershed divides of the Ural and Caucasus Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian and Black Seas, and the waterways of the Turkish Straits.

Europe is the world’s second-smallest continent, covering about 10,180,000 square kilometres (3,930,000 sq mi) or 2% of the Earth’s surface and about 6.8% of its land area. Of Europe’s approximately 50 countries, Russia is by far the largest by both area and population, taking up 40% of the continent , while Vatican City is the smallest. Europe is the third-most populous continent after Asia and Africa, with a population of 739–743 million or about 11% of the world’s population. Europe has a climate heavily affected by warm Atlantic currents, tempering winters and enabling warm summers on most of the continent, even on latitudes that have severe climates in North America and Asia.

  2. Hello, I introduce myself, I am in BCPST preparatory class, and I am contacting you in order to find contacts of specialists or ornithologists in the field of bird songs. For our scientific work, we want to study the impact of noise pollution on birds in the city, in particular, from a protocol point of view, by studying recordings of bird songs of defined species in urban and non-urban areas. and by comparing different parameters of these signals (frequency in particular). All this would serve to show the acoustic masking according to the types of noise pollution and the possible modifications of the songs of the birds following this anthropogenic problem. Can you provide us with valuable information, such as protocol leads, and especially ornithologist contacts ready to contact us for this project? Do not hesitate to contact me on 06 33 08 80 91 or send my number to contacts Best regards, Maurin Lilia

    1. The best thing to do when beginning a research project is to consult the literature. On the web or in the library, look at the journals that have ornithological literature and then find the research papers that have to do with bird song. There you will find all the protocol and all the other information you will need to begin your project and you will also find the names of ornithological contacts as well.
