Plantations, not farmlands, cause biotic homogenisation of ground-active beetles in south-eastern Australia

Sweaney, Nicole; Driscoll, Don; Porch, Nicholas; Lindenmayer, David B


Following landscape change, species invasions and extinctions may lead to biotic homogenisation, resulting in increased taxonomic and functional similarity between previously distinct biotas. Biotic homogenisation is more likely to occur in landscapes where the matrix contrasts strongly with native vegetation patches. To test this, we examined the distribution of ground-active beetles in a landscape of remnant Eucalyptus open woodland patches where large areas of lower contrast matrix...[Show more]
