Different lines indicate the amount of surviving species out of 21 at different time intervals (t in years) since the start of the simulation. Bold lines indicate the diversity in the whole landscape and thin lines indicate the average patch diversity. Every point represents the average of 30 simulations. The landscape configuration consists of 100 patches that vary in size and are distributed at random, the average patch carrying capacity is 20 breeding pairs. The figure illustrates that the metapopulation diversity is highest at high fragmentation scales in all competitive settings whereas patch diversity is highest at intermediate fragmentation levels.
