Odonate communities across a desert development gradient

Ezra Garfield, Taylor Kang, Isak Kolding & Joshua Mayo
Deserts are changing rapidly due to urbanization and climate change. Although human development can destroy habitat, it can also create novel environments that organisms may use or adapt to. In this study we compared artificial ponds to natural oases to determine whether artificial water sources differ in the odonate communities they support, as odonate species are indicators of aquatic habitat quality. We found that odonate community composition differed markedly based on water source characteristics such...
