SAMS 1.1.1 The goal of this proejct is to understand changes and differences in abundance, diversity, occupancy, and overall habitat associations of the medium and large-sized mammal community across a South Texas landscape mosaic (typically generalized across three scales: invaded, intermediate, native). The main objectives of this research project is: (1) determine the frequency and how medium and large-sized mammals occupy and use nonnative and invasive plant dominated habitats in comparison to intermediate/mixed and native/restored habitats, (2) determine animal richness, abundance, diversity, and occupancy across a continuum of the aforementioned scale, and (3) relate mammal community parameters to habitat physiognomy and bottom up processes.
