Our objectives in this study were 1) to estimate home range sizes for Canyon and Rock wrens, 2) to assess the degree to which their home ranges overlap within and between species, and 3) to assess fine-scale resource use within rocky cliff habitats by measuring foraging microhabitat
locations for each species.
Micrometeorological and microhabitat
factors affecting maintenance and dissemination of tick-borne diseases in the environment.
hartwegii (Scotts Valley spineflower, Polygonaceae) is a narrow endemic plant restricted to a specialized microhabitat
(exposed bedrock in California prairie) in Santa Cruz County, California.
Nest-site selection is the disproportionate use of specific habitats for nesting (Wilson, 1998); nesting females can use cues from macrohabitat and microhabitat
when selecting nest-sites (Janzen and Morjan, 2001; Kolbe and Janzen, 2002).
used by larvae and adults of the other Leptothrips is unknown.
variables showed a significant increase between catch-per-unit-effort (CPUE) and cobble (P = 0.
use by introduced Hemidactylus turcicus (Mediterranean geckos) in north central Florida.
A population of ocean microbes is defined by genetic likeness and shared ecological activities, such as their preferred microhabitat
- say, free-floating or attached to algae - or their ability to harvest a particular substance.
partitioning by two species of visually cryptic, intertidal limpets.
This study evaluated the relationship between selected microhabitat
features and C.
The secondary objective was to determine significant microhabitat
variables associated with location of raccoon latrines.
This overlap of niches could suggest a potential competition between the species and, in that case, probably the microhabitat
use would be the determinant for the relationship.
