Amphibian species richness across environmental gradients

  title={Amphibian species richness across environmental gradients},
  author={Earl E. Werner and David Skelly and Rick A. Relyea and Kerry L. Yurewicz},
Large-scale field patterns are a fundamental source of inferences on processes responsible for variation in species richness among habitats. We examined species richness of larval amphibian communities in 37 ponds over seven years on the Univ. of Michigan’s E. S. George Reserve. Ordination of the community incidence matrix indicated a strong major axis of variation in species associations that was correlated with pond hydroperiod, surface area and forest canopy cover. Communities were… CONTINUE READING
