Urbanization and Spider Diversity: Influences of Human Modification of Habitat Structure and Productivity
As a part of the Central Arizona-Phoenix Long-Term Ecological Research project, we determined how land-use alteration influenced spider and harvestman diversity. We sampled spiders in six habitat types (desert parks, urban desert remnants, industrial, agricultural, xeric-and mesic-residential yards) and tested how habitat type and productivity affected spider diversity and abundance. As expected, agricultural fields and mesic yards were more productive than the other, xeric habitats. These moredoi:10.1007/978-0-387-73412-5_30 fatcat:rd5yfibwezhxfn5axqzcbmt3mu
