Roadside connectivity does not increase reptile abundance or richness in a fragmented mallee landscape

Williams, Joel; Driscoll, Don; Bull, C. Michael

Description

The effect of isolation and the importance of dispersal in establishing and maintaining populations in fragments of remnant habitat remain poorly understood. Nevertheless, environmental connectivity is likely to be important for ensuring the long-term preservation of biodiversity in extensively cleared landscapes. In this study, we compared reptile communities in large conservation parks with those in small woodland remnants 6.5-12km from the parks, on the Eyre Peninsula, South Australia,...[Show more]
