To examine microhabitat
use by each species we assigned each of the burst sampling locations from 2012 in which a focal bird was foraging (n = 2,700 locations) into one of six categories: (1) boulder: upon or under large rocks [greater than or equal to] 0.
Despite the presence of these habitats, the distribution of this species depends on environmental conditions at the scale of microhabitats
and the presence of hosts, Atelerix algirus, if any.
hartwegii is a narrow endemic plant restricted to the specialized microhabitat
of exposed bedrock in California prairie (as defined by Holstein 2011, equates to California annual grassland of Sawyer et al.
Our goal in this study was to determine which variables characterizing microhabitat
are important to nest-site selection within this reintroduced population of M.

However, there is little discussion on the microhabitat
features within Texas waterways that potentially provide the most favorable conditions for continued expansion of C.
variables were measured at each latrine site and included: number of downed trees (coarse woody debris) in a 5-m radius surrounding the latrine, substrate (bare stone, log, or soil), and distance to nearest tree > 30 cm diameter at breast height (DBH).
auriculatus was recorded among lichens and sharing microhabitat
with Phrynopus bracki and Phrynopus tribulosus, species that have a very similar length.
Each location has its cast of characters interacting with tides, rainfall, seasonal changes, microhabitat
, fish and invertebrate recruitment patterns.
Differences in phytotelm conditions between populations suggest that sampling regimes in sites with multiple populations or one very large population should account for microhabitat
