Furthermore, many forest species grow relatively sparsely - that is to say there are not many of that species in a particular area. If the forest size is reduced the number of certain species decreases, and as the forest becomes fragmented, islands can be created without any member of critical species. This makes it impossible for the species to survive.
Studies of survival of forest islands - island biogeography - shows the correlation between the fragment size and the length of time that its biodiversity will survive. The relationship varies from one locality to another, but one study has shown that in a 100 ha forest island, reducing the area by 10% will cause 13% of the species to be lost in 50 years, while 15% loss of area cause a 40% loss of species. In short, the decline in number of species is faster than the rate of the decline in the size of the fragment.
