... range endemism can also occur in continental habitats such as estuaries, widely separated intertidal habitats and off-shore islands, reefs and shoals. The conservation of narrow range taxa is of particular concern because these organisms are susceptible to exploitation and habitat degradation. ...

For example, there is evidence that recent heavy rain events precede oyster disease in estuaries. In addition, climate change is increasing the abundance and virulence of bacterial and viral pathogens...

... of these three is classed as a haul-out site. Because N. cinerea is susceptible to mortality from fishery interactions, is strongly philopatric and that small colonies are especially susceptible to extinction, the status of its small aggregations on Kangaroo Island should be taken into consideration when coastal...

As mounds temperatures are above ambient temperatures during winter, they may also assist in reducing the susceptibility of over-wintering frogs to chytrid...
