Abstract

Land managers have traditionally assumed that achieving maximum local habitat diversity will favor diversity of wildlife. Recent trends in species composition in fragmented landscapes suggest, however, that a more comprehensive view is required for perpetuation of regional diversity. A regional network of preserves, with sensitive habitats insulated from human disturbance, might best perpetuate ecosystem integrity in the long term.
