- ... Thresholds in the relationship between species richness and natural land cover can inform landscape‐level vegetation protection and restoration targets. However, landscapes differ considerably in composition and other environmental attributes. If the effect of natural land cover on species richness depends on (i.e., interacts with) these attributes, and this affects the value of thresholds in this ...

- ... Grazing by mammalian herbivores can alter vegetation structure and composition. It can therefore affect critical habitat features used by native wildlife for shelter, feeding, and breeding. This can have variable effects, which advantage or disadvantage particular species, depending on habitat requirements. We tested the relative effects of recent and historic livestock grazing and recent rabbit a ...
