Classic metapopulations are rare among common beetle species from a naturally fragmented landscape

Driscoll, Don; Kirkpatrick, J. B.; McQuillan, Peter B.; Bonham, Kevin J.


1. The general importance of metacommunity and metapopulation theories is poorly understood because few studies have examined responses of the suite of species that occupy the same fragmented landscape. In this study, we examined the importance of spatial ecological theories using a large-scale, naturally fragmented landscape. 2. We measured the occurrence and abundance of 44 common beetle species in 31 natural rainforest fragments in Tasmania, Australia. We tested for an effect on beetle...[Show more]
