Adaptive habitat selection by a single celled alga?
Faculty and students in the Department of Biology are bound together by a common interest in explaining the diversity of life, the fit between form and function, and the distribution and abundance of organisms. The research ...
Life on the edge : the role of habitat selection on vole density near forest boundaries
Theories of density-dependent habitat selection predict pronounced gradients of population density near habitat edges. Population density in high-quality habitats should decline toward edges with lower-quality habitats, ...
Habitat selection in the Common Five-lined Skink near the northern extent of its range
The study of habitat selection is vital to identify potential threats and to conserve species at risk. The consequences of living in a particular habitat can influence processes beyond the individual with observable effects ...
Is patch use determined by fine-scale microhabitat differences or density dependent habitat selection?
If individuals base their patch and habitat choices on fine-scale differences in microhabitat, then their use o f patches, defined by capture sites, should correspond with measures o f microhabitat. But if individuals ...
