Fine-scale habitat heterogeneity influences occupancy in terrestrial mammals in a temperate region of Australia

Stirnemann, Ingrid; Mortelliti, Alessio; Gibbons, Philip; Lindenmayer, David

Description

Vegetation heterogeneity is an inherent feature of most ecosystems, characterises the structure of habitat, and is considered an important driver of species distribution patterns. However, quantifying fine-scale heterogeneity of vegetation cover can be time consuming, and therefore it is seldom measured. Here, we determine if heterogeneity is worthwhile measuring, in addition to the amount of cover, when examining species distribution patterns. Further, we investigated the effect of the...[Show more]
