Some authors argue that intense grazing negatively affects the survival of herpetofauna by changing the macrohabitat (vegetation structure) or microhabitat (ground temperature) in areas they occupy (Ficheux and others 2014), decreasing prey abundance (Wilgers and others 2006) or increasing the number of injured animals by trampling (Olivier and others 2010).

Desde julio del 2011 hasta marzo del 2012 se realizo la deteccion de cuevas activas de zorros; para cada cueva seleccionada se tomaron las coordenadas geograficas, los datos de evidencia de uso, caracteristicas fisicas de la mismas y de su entorno en dos niveles, macrohabitat (en un area de 500 m de radio en torno a cada cueva) y microhabitat (en un area de 20 m de radio en torno a cada cueva).

The transects ran perpendicular to shore and were strategically placed in order to capture the dominant micro-and macrohabitat features of the reef (e.g., boulder, cobble, beams, sandy bottom, high and low relief, reef margins, crevice and overhang space).
Saab (1999) evaluated the impact of vegetation on avian species richness at three spatial scales (i.e., macrohabitat, landscape, and microhabitat) and found that microhabitat variables correlated most with species richness.
