Attenuated Post-Fire Fauna Succession: The Effects of Surrounding Landscape Context on Post-Fire Colonisation of Fauna

Findings from this study demonstrate the nature of fragmented and low quality habitat in the surrounding post-fire matrix, and the diminishing pool of fauna species available for colonisation, which leads to an attenuated succession after fire. Habitat connectivity combined with habitat quality are important factors to provide a rich pool of species for colonising and thus promote the recovery of pre-fire populations.
