The microenvironments of decaying logs support a large invertebrate fauna, but are vulnerable to the effects of logging and land-clearing. We present an analysis of the relationship between a number of environmental variables and the occurrence and abundance of the onychophoran Euperipatoides rowelli within decomposing logs in a forest in south-eastern Australia. Aspect of slope is strongly associated with most of the environmental variables and is a good predictor of both presence and...[Show more]
