Successional specialization in a reptile community cautions against widespread planned burning and complete fire suppression
Summary1. Conservation of biodiversity in fire-prone regions depends on understanding responses tofire in animal communities and the mechanisms governing these responses .2. We collated data from an Australian semi-arid woodl and reptile community (4796 individ-uals captured over 6 years) to: (i) determine the ability of commonly used shorte r-term(2 years) surveys to detect reptile responses to time since fire (TSF) and (ii) investigatewhether ecological traits of species reliably predicted...[Show more]
