The biogenic substrates evaluated here are sessile species and generate favorable internal spaces for exploitation by vagile organisms, which search for the benefits described above.
princeps are highly vagile, and their reliance on mesic and riparian habitat influences their dispersal ability and population persistence (Vignieri 2005).
Because birds perceive the landscape at a broader spatial scale than less vagile taxa, the issue of offsite influences on conservation outcomes within PAs appears both particularly relevant and easier to assess at the coarse spatial scale that we use.

migrations) can be critical for managers to sustain viable populations of these large vagile mammals (Thomas and Irby, 1990; Berger, 2004; McClure et al.
It is interesting to note that two benthic groups, brachiopods and polychaetes, show reversed diversity patterns: a low-diversity brachiopod fauna is associated with a high-diversity scolecodont assemblage, suggesting that the bottom environments were indeed more suitable for vagile benthos than sessile filtrators.

For example, one entire clade, or lineage, of 16 species (the "spiny leg" clade), has "lost" web building behavior, with the concomitant development of long spines along the legs and adoption of a vagile, cursorial, predatory strategy.
As the Borneo biota has close affinities with other regions within Sundaland, few comprehensive studies are done on Borneo endemics, as most groups of more or less vagile organisms are distributed over a wider area.
