Measuring edge contrast using biotic criteria helps define edge effects on the density of an invasive plant

  journal={Landscape Ecology},
Habitat edges can alter population dynamics, influence community structure, determine the success of conservation efforts, and facilitate the spread of invasive species. Despite recognition that edges influence the nature and strength of ecological interactions, edges are generally characterized using abiotic measures that likely capture habitat quality for only the focal taxa, and ignore the potential for biotic interactions to explain edge effects. Here we describe the association between… CONTINUE READING
