Can the intermediate disturbance hypothesis and information on species traits predict anuran responses to fire?

Westgate, Martin; Driscoll, Don; Lindenmayer, David B


Fire is a common form of recurrent disturbance in many ecosystems, but ecological theory has a poor record of predicting animal responses to fire, at both species and assemblage levels. As a consequence, there is limited information to guide fire regime management for biodiversity conservation. We investigated a key research gap in the fire ecology literature; that is, the response of an anuran assemblage to variation in the fire return interval. We tested two hypotheses using a...[Show more]
