Single large or several small? Applying biogeographic principles to tree-level conservation and biodiversity offsets

Le Roux, Darren; Stagoll (Ikin), Karen; Manning, Adrian; Gibbons, Philip; Lindenmayer, David B


Land development contributes to the clearance of large trees that are sometimes offset with many smaller trees as compensatory wildlife habitat. But are many smaller trees a valid biodiversity offset for the loss of a single large tree? To answer this question, we tested predictions underpinned by island biogeography theory. Targeting birds, we investigated size and landscape context effects at 72 trees of three sizes (small, medium, and large) located in four landscape contexts (reserves,...[Show more]
