Publication Date



This project sought to determine if a relatively large patch of scrub habitat tends to support more species than several small patches of equal cumulative area and if the species' compositions of relatively small reserves tend to be random subsets of the composition of relatively large reserves. Data obtained was used to hypothesize the role played by habitat fragmentation in determining the species' compositions of a particular patch of scrub.
