[en] We analysed the spatial frequencies of birds and their distributions across three types of habitats (forests, plantations and various fallows) in the vegetation mosaic in the south of Benin from a total of 45 monitoring stations. 167 species belonging to 40 families were inventoried, the forest having 153 species and fallows and plantations having each 99 species. The similarity index of Jaccard showed 44.0% affinity between forests and flantations, 43.1% between forest and fallows, and 75.5% between forest and fallows. The analysis in main composent and ascending hierachical classification identified three local bird communities, namely for forests, plantations and fallows, ubiquitous in three areas and, respectively, aligned according to their need for intact forest or their propensity to tolerate changes in vegetation/ deforstation.
