A multi-scale assessment of beetle diversity and landscape properties
MetadataShow full item record
The issue of scale is important in ecology. Many studies have indicated that ecological patterns can vary with the grain and extent of the study, and thus it is difficult to extrapolate from fine to coarse scales. Furthermore, habitats are generally not homogenous, so interactions between an organism and its environment, as well as the scale at which they are examined, are primary factors underlying the patterns or processes being studied. This study has many facets, but we are particularly interested in how spatial patterns of beetle species richness and environmental variables change with ...
