The authors discuss results from a long-term study on fragmentation in Amazonia.
They found that forest fragmentation can impact species diversity, abundance, and alter ecosystem dynamics.
The authors also found that the effects of fragmentation is compounded by other human activity to negatively impact rainforest species.
