Aim  The species–area relationship has been applied in the conservation context to predict monotonic species richness declines as natural area is converted to human-dominated land covers. However, some conversion of natural cover could introduce new habitat types and allow new open habitat species to occur. Moreover, decelerating richness–area relationships suggest that, as natural area is converted to human-dominated covers, more species will be added to the rare habitat than are lost from the… CONTINUE READING
