Abstract

Edge effects are thought to be widespread in ecology and have important implications for forest fragmentation and conservation. Generally, however, large openings in the forest canopy are considered. Here we report a statistically robust edge effect from forest paths with a width of less than three meters on two chameleon species. We discuss possible causes and the implications of this result.
