Several studies have shown that wetland loss and habitat fragmentation can alter diversity and abundance of herpetofauna, but taxonomic attention has been skewed towards amphibians. We assessed responses of aquatic turtles to features at multiple spatial scales in an intensively farmed region of the Midwestern United States. Spatially hierarchical sampling was conducted from 2001 to 2003 in 35 randomly selected 23-km2 cells throughout the upper Wabash River basin in Indiana. Hoop nets were used… CONTINUE READING
