Human-caused fragmentation of habitats is threatening an increasing number of animal and plant species, making an understanding of the factors influencing patch occupancy ever more important. The overall goal of the current study was to develop probabilistic models of patch occupancy for the mountain yellow-legged frog (Rana muscosa). This once-common species has declined dramatically, at least in part as a result of habitat fragmentation resulting from the introduction of predatory fish. We… CONTINUE READING
