That model suggests that changes in the age of forest patches affect populations more than edge effects
that result from clearcutting.
For this kind of filling process, the value of Hu is large and the edge effect
is thus not obvious, we may replace the [k.
on nest predation in the Shawnee National Forest, Southern Illinois.
We tested four hypotheses that might explain this variation in edge effects
in nest predation patterns: (1) forest composition at the landscape scale, i.
There was a clear edge effect
on soil nutrient availability (Fig.
The maximum contact pressure for a profile optimized for no edge effect
is 573 MPa, which is only 7% above the ideal contact pressure distribution.
The perimeter-area relationship qualifies the edge effect
: the higher the value of this metric, the greater the edge effect
in the fragment.
Does the edge effect
influence plant community structure in a tropical dry forest?
benefits galling insects in the Brazilian Amazon.
Habitat fragmentation and the associated edge effects
are of primary concern to species conservation and habitat preservation.
We interpret these results as an indication that small mammals perceived an edge effect
, but this effect was modulated by the forest stratum.
F] in the expression (3) evaluates not only the transversal edge effect
, but also the demagnetizing effect of the secondary currents.
