Spatial dynamics of the knob-tailed gecko Nephrurus stellatus in a fragmented agricultural landscape

Driscoll, Don; Whitehead, Catherine A.; Lazzari, Juliana


In fragmented landscapes, a species' dispersal ability and response to habitat condition are key determinants of persistence. To understand the relative importance of dispersal and condition for survival of Nephrurus stellatus (Gekkonidae) in southern Australia, we surveyed 92 woodland remnants three times. This gecko favours early post-fire succession conditions so may be at risk of extinction in the long-unburnt agricultural landscape. Using N-mixture models, we compared the influence of four...[Show more]
