Use of farm dams as frog habitat in an Australian agricultural landscape: factors affecting species richness and distribution

Hazell, Donna; Cunningham, Ross; Mackey, Brendan; Osborne, Will; Lindenmayer, David B


The terrestrial and aquatic attributes of 70 farm dams and five semi-natural waterbodies in the upper Shoalhaven catchment, south-eastern Australia, were examined. Relationships between habitat attributes, frog species richness and the presence of individual species were explored using mixed and logistic models. A positive relationship was found between the extent of native canopy cover in the surrounding landscape and frog species richness, and the occurrence of Litoria peronii and Uperoleia...[Show more]
