To examine use of macrohabitat
, we established 10 line-transects (50-200 m in length) within the six dominant macrohabitats
across CC Menor, including oak forest, wind-swept oak forest, palm forest, low beach-vegetation, gumbolimbo forest, and beach (Fig.

Aquatic habitat is most strongly associated with the Amazon site (75%, n = 4) for this pattern, whereas the other macrohabitat
types are most strongly associated at the Chaco site (73%, n = 11).
Microhabitat and macrohabitat
