Fragments connected by pseudocorridors with gaps
41% of the species became extinct after 6 months.
Conclusion: Even small barriers to dispersal raised extinction rates in a fragmented habitat.
54.14 Narrow Barriers Suffice to Separate Arthropod Subpopulations Many species of small arthropods went extinct in isolated habitat patches. Recolonization of patches was prevented by barriers to dispersal as small as 10 mm.
