Habitat heterogeneity : how it is generated and drives spatial patterns in mammals and birds

Ingrid Stirnemann
Heterogeneity (variation) in vegetation structure is an inherent feature of all terrestrial ecosystems, characterises their structure, and influences the diversity and distribution of biota. Understanding how both the quantity and heterogeneity of a resource shapes the structure and dynamics of ecosystems is of fundamental importance in ecology. The concept of heterogeneity underpins some of the major theories in ecology, including species coexistence theory, source-sink dynamics, fractal theory, and invasion theory. However, our understanding of the...
