Incorporating metapopulation dynamics of Greater Gliders into reserve design in disturbed landscapes

McCarthy, Michael; Lindenmayer, David B


A metapopulation model of the greater glider (Petauroides volans), an Australian forest-dependent, arboreal marsupial, was developed that accounted for changes in habitat quality of patches in response to fire. Spatial correlation in the incidence of fire was incorporated in the model, with correlations within and among habitat patches. The correlation in the incidence of fire declined with the distance between points in the landscape. The spatially correlated disturbance regime allowed the...[Show more]
