Abstract

1. In a modelling exercise, the quantity and distribution of habitat patches within a heathland biotope for four ectothermic heathland animals (silver‐studded blue butterfly [Plebejus argus], a red ant [Myrmica sabuleti], heath grasshopper [Chorthippus vagans] and sand lizard [Lacerta agilis]) were compared in space and time assuming two climates: that experienced at the northern edge of the species’ ranges and that 300–400 km further south, where mean summer temperatures are 2–3 °C warmer.
