A new study finds support for the habitat amount hypothesis, arguing that even small, isolated habitat patches should be conserved to help preserve biodiversity.
Roads and increased motorized traffic contribute to a soaring number of grizzly bear deaths; luckily proper management has been shown to reduce collisions.
Ecological corridors help species deal with warming temperatures and habitat loss, but they can also be used by invasive species. Invasive squirrels in Italy may rely on these corridors to spread under climate change.
Migratory marine species don't see international boundaries, yet they cross them during long-distance migrations across oceans. A new synthesis study creates a prototype data system to support worldwide conservation efforts.
Elk move with their resources, performing yearly migrations. Climate change has caused the timing of migrations to shift over a 16 year period, with elk now arriving in winter ranges 50 days earlier.
A new meta-analysis looks into studies from the past 10 years to determine whether corridors are an effective strategy to mitigate the effect of habitat fragmentation on biodiversity.
Along with other species of insects, Monarch butterflies are disappearing at an alarming rate. New research looks into the role of road collisions during this species’ yearly migration.
Climate change poses a special challenge to endemic species, like the Sichuan snub-nosed monkey, and to the land managers looking to preserve these rare species.
