Habitat complexity is an important factor governing species richness and habitat selection in birds. The present study examined this relationship in a large wandoo woodland in Western Australia. Habitat complexity (comprising canopy, shrub, ground vegetation, log and leaf litter cover) and bird species richness was recorded in 48 sites, each ∼3 ha in size. We found no significant correlation of habitat complexity with species richness. We propose that the absence of such a relationship results...[Show more]
