Short excerpt for post
Forest species that evolved in high-disturbance ecosystems show less sensitivity to habitat edges, and are more prevalent in high-latitude regions.
Which plant species persist and spread in fragmented landscapes is determined by both their mode of dispersal, and the degree of connectivity within and among habitat types.
Several new studies explore how well connected protected areas are across the globe, the impact of climate change on them, and adaptation solutions for the future.
Species redistribution under climate change often means crossing borders into new jurisdictions. How can we best manage biodiversity under differing ecological, economic, and social values?
The trade-off between needing to move and needing to breed means that a heterogeneous landscape can effectively support range shifts.
A global analysis of the tropics highlights the limited degree of forest connectivity for individuals looking to shift ranges as temperatures increase.
The frequency of prescribed fire determines how extensively ecological succession occurs, which influences the biodiversity of insects such as butterflies.
A review looking at almost 200 plant species shows that for most of them, fragmentation has serious negative consequences on the genetic fitness of their progeny.
Pronghorn and sage-grouse migrate long distances in the U.S. and Canada, and understanding how they use both public and private lands helps better connect and protect their routes for the future.
