Distribution of woodland amphibians along a forest fragmentation gradient

  title={Distribution of woodland amphibians along a forest fragmentation gradient},
  author={James P. Gibbs},
  journal={Landscape Ecology},
Understanding how changes in land-use affect the distribution and abundance of organisms is an increasingly important question in landscape ecology. Amphibians may be especially prone to local extinction resulting from human-caused transformation and fragmentation of their habitats owing to the spatially and temporally dynamic nature of their populations. In this study, distributions of five species of woodland amphibians with differing life histories were surveyed along a 10 km, spatially… CONTINUE READING
