A forgotten habitat? Granite inselbergs conserve reptile diversity in fragmented agricultural landscapes
1. Rocky outcrop ecosystems support unique biological communities, high levels of species endemism and are important in the conservation of biodiversity worldwide. Some rocky ecosystems occur in fragmented landscapes, and as such, play a key role in conserving reptile biodiversity in modified environments. 2. We present a case study of reptile diversity in granite landforms from south-eastern Australia, using a conceptual framework based on landscape ecology theory. We stratified inselbergs by...[Show more]
