Does the endangered Ohlone Tiger Beetle exhibit meta-population dynamics? What are the implications of these dynamics for conservation of this species and its habitats?

View of songbird being fed pupae

How does vegetational diversity at different scales affect bat diversity
and their ecosystem services?
