The author purposes that species may not necessarily be good surrogates for other species per se, but rather behavioral systems might be more appropriate for making comparison and predictions among species. Certain aspects of behavior, such as territoriality, sex-biased dispersal, and sociality might be more similar across species, than are other traits such as phylogenetic relations, body size, or other aspects of ecology. An understanding of the behavioral ecology of species should provide further insight into how species respond to fragmented landscapes. In conjunction with behavior, the author describe how life and evolutionary history and degree of habitat specialization can affect a species response to fragmented landscapes.
