mi·cro·cli·mate

(mī′krō-klī′mĭt)

Canaday (1996) lists other factors that make understory insectivores highly susceptible to habitat disturbances, such as changes in microclimatic conditions affecting the abundance and distribution of their prey species, high ecological specialization, fluctuations in predation rates as mortality source for these birds, and competition from opportunistic, disturbance-tolerant omnivores, and general patchy distribution (Robinson, Brawn & Robinson, 2000).
