Land-use change and climate change are considered to be the greatest threats to biodiversity globally. The conversion of natural habitats into agricultural land with remnant patches of the original habitat left embedded within an anthropogenic matrix is one of the main land-use changes. This has been shown to alter species richness and abundance, depending on factors such as remnant area and isolation. Climate change has caused species to shift their distributions, alter their phenologies ...
