Several recent studies show that conservation actions at the fine-scale can add value to the landscape, even when they seem small.
Stepping stone habitats will vary across space in the future, but knowing how they will also vary across time provides a more realistic way to predict connectivity under climate change.
Addressing climate change is a critical part of planning reserve networks for the future, but it doesn't necessarily have to come at a high cost.
Most current marine reserves were designed without accounting for climate change. A new study quantifies whether redesigned reserves might be more ready for the future.
A novel microcosm experiment using a thermally sensitive ciliate shows that the distance between patches, and the quality of patches, can have big consequences for immigration and emigration.
While we often think about corridor design for large, far-ranging animals, less attention is paid to how we ensure that populations of invertebrates stay connected.
Forest species that evolved in high-disturbance ecosystems show less sensitivity to habitat edges, and are more prevalent in high-latitude regions.
