The effects of environmental variables (measured by NDVI) and management variables (measured by human disturbance levels across management regimes) on community composition, species richness and species abundances of the targeted biodiversity components (plants, birds and mammals) are presented in this chapter. Human impacts appear to be key drivers of biodiversity loss, triggering cascading effects on the structure and function of individual constituents of biological communities. These results highlight biodiversity responses to human pressures and management interventions meant to address them.
