Why was only one database searched?
Viewed 26 times

Ecology and conservation biology are interdisciplinary fields. Here is the UC Davis Libguide to databases in ecology and conservation biology: http://guides.lib.ucdavis.edu/content.php?pid=548218&sid=4512825#16552484.

Perhaps if only one database was searched for a highly interdisciplinary field like ecology/conservation biology the word systematic should be reconsidered as a word in the title and as a description of the scope of the work, even though PRISMA guidelines were followed?

Good point and great idea. Sensitivity of search terms and bibliometrics tools should be explored in most if not all formalized syntheses.
