Novel patch-matrix interactions: patch width influences matrix use by birds
This study investigated the influence of the width of patches of native eucalypt forest on bird occurrence in stands of exotic radiata pine (Pinus radiata) forests that surrounded such patches. Boundaries between eucalypt and pine forests were surveyed to examine bird occurrence and species richness at different distances in the pine matrix from eucalypt forest edges. Birds were counted by the area search method within 0.5 ha quadrats at 32 study sites (where sites spanned the boundaries of...[Show more]
