Full data for: Predators, prey or temperature? Mechanisms driving niche use of a foundation plant species by specialist lizards

Kristian Bell, Timothy Doherty & Don Driscoll
Foundation species interact strongly with other species to profoundly influence communities, such as by providing food, refuge from predators, or beneficial microclimates. We tested relative support for these mechanisms using spinifex grass (Triodia spp.), which is a foundation species of arid Australia that provides habitat for diverse lizard communities. We first compared the attributes of live and dead spinifex, bare ground and a structurally similar plant (Lomandra effusa), and then tested the relative strength of...
