Mader, H.J.; Pauritsch, G., 1981: The barrier effect of lightly used roads and forest roads on small mammals as studied by marking and translocation. It was shown that lightly used ordinary and communal roads and asphalted forest roads determined the direction of movement of mice and exercised a barrier effect on mice populations. Artificially augmenting mouse population density did not lead to...

Roads and highways represent one of the most important anthropogenic impacts on natural areas and contribute to habitat fragmentation, because they are linear features that can inhibit animal movement, thereby causing barrier effects by subdividi...

Adams L.W.; Geis A.D., 1983: Effects of roads on small mammals. The study was designed to determine the effects of roads on the diversity, spatial distribution and density of small mammals. Small mammals (5859 individuals) (40 spp.) were snap-trapped in the study. Data resulted from 144,360 trap-nights of effo...

Roads can act as barriers to animal movement, which may reduce population persistence by reducing recolonization of empty habitats and limiting immigration. Appropriate mitigation of this barrier effect (e.g. seasonal road closures, location an...

The landscape of the world is becoming more dissected by roads each year due to the growing human population. Numerous studies have documented the direct impact of roads on wildlife by examining mortality caused by vehicles but few have investigat...

A primary objective of road ecology is to understand and predict how roads affect connectivity of wildlife populations. Road avoidance behavior can fragment populations, whereas lack of road avoidance can result in high mortality due to wildlife-v...

In the wet tropics of northeastern Queensland, Australia, the composition of the small-mammal community close to the edge of an unsealed rain forest road differed from that of the forest interior. During the first of 2 trapping series, mark-recapt...
