Published: 22 October 2021
.... For aquatic-breeding frogs, pond physical/chemical properties influence all life-stages and therefore populations, species, and communities. However, studies have focussed on tadpoles, considered few water variables, and not considered relationships between water attributes and frog populations or communities...

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...
