Lindenmayer, David B.; Blanchard, Wade; Foster, Claire; Scheele, Ben C.; Westgate, Martin; Stein, John; Crane, Mason; Florance, Dan


Habitat loss is widely acknowledged as a key driver of global biodiversity decline. However, whether biodiversity loss occurs in response to reductions in habitat amount versus reductions in connectivity in fragmented landscapes is debated. A challenge in resolving this issue is that measures of the amount of native woody vegetation cover and hose calculated for structural connectivity are often highly correlated. Using multi-season detection-occupancy models we address the question: After...[Show more]
