Integrating species traits with extrinsic threats: Closing the gap between predicting and preventing species declines

Murray, Kris; Rosauer, Dan; McCallum, Hamish; Skerratt, Lee F.


In studies of extinction risk, it is often insufficient to conclude that species with narrow ranges or small clutch sizes require prioritized protection. To improve conservation outcomes, we also need to know which threats interact with these traits to endanger some species but not others. In this study, we integrated the spatial patterns of key threats to Australian amphibians with species' ecological/life-history traits to both predict declining species and identify their likely threats.
