SUMMARY (1) We examine patterns of species richness of woody plants, carabid beetles and land snails, respectively, on seventeen undisturbed forested islands (area range: 0-6-75 ha) in Lake Malaren, Sweden, in relation to area, isolation, vegetation structure, habitat diversity, habitat heterogeneity, and other factors. (2) The slopes of the species-area relations (z-values in the power model) are 0 10 for woody plants, 0-16 for land snails, 0-36 for carabid beetles, and 0-62 for forest birds… CONTINUE READING
