... Using data from 57 sites across suburban Perth we tested the influence of Cat Density on species richness and community composition of passerine birds as well as on the presence/absence of 15 common passerine species. Cat Density was not a significant predictor of any of the dependent variables...

... sampling is labour-intensive and attained sample size is often not large enough to detect all species present. Therefore, we applied integrated rarefaction and extrapolation sampling curves and asymptotic analysis to estimate species richness. We observed 103 species of rotifers, 29 species of cladocerans...

... are poorly understood. We pitfall-trapped ants in winter and spring over a twenty-two year period (1992–2013) in the Simpson Desert, central Australia. We asked: over what time-scale does ant activity (abundance and species richness) respond to climate (temperature and precipitation) and vegetation (plant...
