Environmental and vegetation variables have a greater influence than habitat fragmentation in structuring lizard communities in urban bushland

Jellinek, Sacha; Driscoll, Don; Kirkpatrick, Jamie


The expansion of urban areas and adjacent farming land into natural landscapes modifies habitats and produces small isolated pockets of native vegetation. This fragmentation of the natural habitat subdivides animal communities, reduces population sizes and increases vulnerability to extinction. In this paper we investigate whether fragmentation decreases lizard species richness, composition, overall abundance and abundance at the species level. Urban remnants consisting of five small (< 10 ha)...[Show more]
