The importance of local and landscape-scale processes to the occupancy of wetlands by pond-breeding amphibians

  title={The importance of local and landscape-scale processes to the occupancy of wetlands by pond-breeding amphibians},
  author={Rick D. Scherer and Erin Muths and Barry R. Noon},
  journal={Population Ecology},
Variation in the distribution and abundance of species across landscapes has traditionally been attributed to processes operating at fine spatial scales (i.e., environmental conditions at the scale of the sampling unit), but processes that operate across larger spatial scales such as seasonal migration or dispersal are also important. To determine the relative importance of these processes, we evaluated hypothesized relationships between the probability of occupancy in wetlands by two… CONTINUE READING
