Abstract: The size of a habitat has a strong influence on the number, composition, and productivity of wildlife species within a given community. The species-area relationship can be a useful tool for wildlife community habitat evaluation. Species-area curves can be modified to consider both landscape and habitat elements and to provide improved predictions of either overall species richness or richness of specific groups of wildlife. Limitations of using the species-area relationship include the possibility of overlooking the value of small areas for certain species and the difficulty in considering the effects of regional dynamics on species richness.
