Determining the Spatial Scale of Species ’ Response to Habitat

  title={Determining the Spatial Scale of Species ’ Response to Habitat},
  author={Jeffrey D. Holland and Daniel G. Bert and Lenore Fahrig},
E attributes such as population abundance and species richness depend not only on patch characteristics but also on the characteristics of the landscape surrounding the patch, known as patch context (Åberg et al. 1995, Gascon et al. 1999, Saab 1999, Szacki 1999, Fahrig 2001). Focal patch studies are one approach to studying the effects of patch context. In such studies, the data on species abundance or richness are collected in a number of patches or sites. The landscape predictor variables (e… CONTINUE READING
