Association between the occurrence of small mammal species and vegetation characteristics described by the three principal components. Comparison of mean (+/- standard error) component scores of used (open bars) and unused (grey bars) trap locations for A. montensis (A. mon), O. nigripes (O. nig), G. microtarsus (G. mic), D. sublineatus (D. sub), and M. incanus (M. inc) and. Asterisks mark a significant difference between used and unused trap locations. Numbers of used/unused trap locations are given below. For A. montensis results of PC1 and PC2 are not given because the use of vegetation described by these variables differed between fragments (significant interaction between FRAGMENT and USE).
