Dataset with information about avian species population trends (calculated on data provided in Stephens et al. 2016) and level of specialization for each species in several axes of ecological specialization (calculated following the procedure indicated in Morelli et al. 2019). Fields: Species; Max.trend; Min.trend; Mean.trend; SD Trend; no.countries; Trend_categories; Diet.specialization; Foraging.behav.specialization; Foraging.subst.specialization; Habitat.specialization;; Mean.specialization.
