- ... This study documents the detrimental effects of human recreation on the North American wood turtle (Clemmys insculpta) in Connecticut. We chronicled the dynamics of two allopatric wood turtle populations in a protected southern New England wildlife reserve for 20 yr (1974‐1993). Both wood turtle populations were reproductively isolated from one another, physically separated ≈100 yr ago when a 1.5 ...

- ... A null model for the effects of treefall gaps on tree species diversity of tropical rain forests is based on the well‐known relationship between abundance and diversity: habitats supporting larger numbers of individuals can support more populations and more species than habitats supporting small numbers of individuals. Because seedling establishment and sapling density increase following canopy op ...
