Long-term studies of bird assemblages on a local scale can answer many crucial questions and hypotheses on the organisation of ecological communities for theoretical and applied ecology. The results under close-to-primeval conditions are even more important because they draw ecological patterns in space and time in prehistoric state. In conclusion, we hint that on the basis of our study interspecies competition does not play a primary role in the organisation of bird assemblages. The predominance of random and positive associations in their population dynamics patterns could be a result of a response to some strong environmental factor such as climate.
