Fig. S1. Map of study area showing the 24 sampling sites and areas of Eucalyptus plantation (dark grey), secondary forest (light grey) and primary forest (white). Symbols show continuous forest (circles), ‘near’ sites (squares) and ‘far’ sites (triangles) in terra firme (black) and riparian (white) forest strips. Inset shows detail of the three sample treatments in forest strips.
Fig. S2. Multi-dimensional scaling ordination (MDS) based on dung beetle community structure across 24 sample points, showing ordination of terra firme (circles) and riparian forests (triangles). Black, grey and open symbols denote continuous, near and far samples, respectively.
Fig. S3. Multi-dimensional scaling ordination (MDS) based on dung beetle community structure within each forest strip [near (grey) and far (white) sites] and the continuous forest control. Statistics are the stress for the MDS ordination and the Global R and P-values for <SMALLCAPS>ANOSIM</SMALLCAPS> tests. In every case, the community structure was significantly different between isolation treatments at P = 0.008. For comparative purposes the x-axis has been reversed in some cases so that continuous forest is always shown on the left.
Table S1. Rank abundance of matrix-tolerant dung beetles species that were frequently caught in Eucalyptus plantations (i.e. species caught ≥ total number of sampling sites -24).
Table S2. Mammals detected during faunal surveys, ranked by the number of detection events (both direct and indirect) for each species or species group.
