Fragmented habitats exhibit distinctive patterns of species richness and species composition. They often exhibit patterns of pronounced nestedness, wherein the species present in comparatively depauperate locations represent statistically proper subsets of those present in locations that are richer in species. The current study has been conducted on the freshwater fishes of Sharavathi River, considering 41 stream and reservoir sites with 261 sampling events to understand the nestedness pattern… CONTINUE READING
