(b) Long Transects

Separation distance (m)

FIGURE 7.6. Mean dissimilarity (%) as a function of separation distance along the short (a) and long (b) transects. Each point is an average of p = 35-42 observation pairs. Open symbols represent pasture, closed symbols forest (from Ettema and Yeates, 2003).
