The effects of forest edges on dung beetle communities in a tropical montane forest
Land use has been implicated as the largest global driver of biodiversity loss, largely due to associated habitat loss and fragmentation. The resulting loss of habitat edges have pervasive impacts on the distribution and persistence of invertebrates. Land use change is of particular concern in African tropical montane forests as populations are increasing dramatically throughout these areas. Therefore, this study focuses on the impacts of livestock and fire on forest edges around a unique Afromontane forest in Nigeria.
