Urbanization impacts on mammals across urban-forest edges and a predictive model of edge effects

Villasenor, Nelida; Driscoll, Don; Escobar, Martín A. H.; Gibbons, Philip; Lindenmayer, David

Description

With accelerating rates of urbanization worldwide, a better understanding of ecological processes at the wildland-urban interface is critical to conserve biodiversity. We explored the effects of high and low-density housing developments on forest-dwelling mammals. Based on habitat characteristics, we expected a gradual decline in species abundance across forest-urban edges and an increased decline rate in higher contrast edges. We surveyed arboreal mammals in sites of high and low housing...[Show more]
