Isolated trees support lower bird taxonomic richness than trees within habitat patches but similar functional diversity

de‐Carvalho, Mariana; Prevedello, Jayme Augusto; Pardini, Renata; Lindenmayer, David B; Almeida‐Gomes, Mauricio


Large isolated trees are keystone structures that can help maintain biodiversity in fragmented landscapes, with evidence that open areas with isolated trees may support similar levels of taxonomic diversity to nearby patches of habitat. However, it is not clear if isolated trees can support the same diversity of ecological functions as trees in habitat patches. We compared species richness, community composition and functional diversity of birds in trees at forest edges and isolated trees....[Show more]
