EFFECTS OF LANDSCAPE STRUCTURE IN FLORIDA SCRUB: A POPULATION PERSPECTIVE
TLDR
This work examined the effects of landscape structure on the distribution of the Florida scrub lizard in naturally fragmented habitat and applied the model to a sympatric lizard, the six-lined racerunner, which is similar in body size to S. woodi.
The relative influence of habitat loss and fragmentation: do tropical mammals meet the temperate paradigm?
TLDR
These findings support previous assumptions that conservation of large mammals in the tropics will require conservation strategies that go beyond prevention of habitat loss to also consider forest cohesion or other aspects of landscape configuration.
The influence of landscape, patch, and within-patch factors on species presence and abundance: a review of focal patch studies
TLDR
The probability of detecting a species response to landscape context, patch, and within-patch factors was influenced by a variety of methodological aspects of the studies such as type of landscape metric used, type of response variable, and sample size.
Fragmented landscapes, habitat specificity, and conservation genetics of three lizards in Florida scrub
TLDR
Comparing range-wide diversity inmitochondrial cytochrome b sequences forthree scrub-associated lizards with contrasting levels of habitat specificity shows strong geographic partitioning of genetic diversity, supporting the hypothesis that scrubfauna is highly restricted by vicariantseparations.
Ecological metrics predict connectivity better than geographic distance
TLDR
Both least-cost distance and pairwise isolation were better predictors of genetic distance than Euclidean distance, indicating that mesic and hydric habitat influence spatial patterns in genetic variation.
Effects of Coastal Lighting on Foraging Behaviorof Beach Mice
TLDR
The results show that artificial light affects the behavior of terrestrial species in coastal areas and that light pollution deserves greater consideration in conservation planning.

Effects of natural habitat fragmentation on an endemic scrub lizard (Sceloporus woodi): an historical perspective based on a mitochondrial DNA gene genealogy
TLDR
The findings indicate that some scrub lizard populations have persisted in isolation for time frames in excess of 1 Myr, providing a case history on the genetic consequences of habitat fragmentation.
Road Development and the Geography of Hunting by an Amazonian Indigenous Group: Consequences for Wildlife Conservation
TLDR
The results clearly demonstrate that placing roads within protected areas can seriously reduce their capacity to sustain wildlife populations and potentially threaten livelihoods of indigenous groups who depend on these resources for their survival.
