An experiment to test key hypotheses of the drivers of reptile distribution in subalpine ski resorts
Summary1. Alpine and subalpine ecosystems support many endemic species. These ecosystems areincreasingly under threat from human-induced disturbances such as habitat loss and fragmenta-tion as a consequence of ski resort development and expansion. However, limited peer-reviewedresearch has investigated the impacts of ski-related disturbances on wildlife, particularly onreptiles.2. To address this knowledge gap, we conducted reptile surveys to determine the patterns ofreptile distribution and...[Show more]
