Abstract: Most previous population viability analyses of endangered species have focused on large vertebrates: long‐lived species with low rates of population increase, long generation times, and comparatively low habitat specificity. Habitat fragmentation not only reduces the distribution of such species, but reduces population densities to levels at which genetic and demographic constraints threaten population persistence. Many other endangered species, in contrast, are characterized by small body size, high rates of population increase, short generation times, and high habitat specificity. Habitat fragmentation reduces distributions of such species, but within remnant habitats population densities may continue to be high. Population viability analyses for these species — which include many small vertebrates, invertebrates, and plants — must focus on the environmental factors and metapopulation characteristics that determine population persistence.
