Strong influence of local habitat structure on mammals reveals mismatch with edge effects models

Villasenor, Nelida; Blanchard, Wade; Driscoll, Don; Gibbons, Philip; Lindenmayer, David

Description

Context: What determines mammal occurrence across wildland-urban edges? A better understanding of the variables involved will help update edge effects theory and improve our ability to conserve biota in urbanizing landscapes. Objectives: For the first time, we tested whether the occurrence of mammals across urban-forest edges and forest interiors was best predicted by: (1) edge variables (i.e. edge type and distance to an urban boundary), (2) local habitat structure (e.g. proportion of...[Show more]
