Climate connectivity areas are distinct from climate refugia, and require new conservation strategies to ensure that species can move from their current homes to future suitable habitat.
Three studies examine the effects of urbanization on species diversity, and provide ideas for modelling connectivity in an urban setting.
Several decades of research from forests that have been experimentally or naturally fragmented reveal long-term trends and provide recommendations to maintain connectivity.
Recent publications highlight the challenges of connecting species across roads and the effectiveness of wildlife crossing structures around the globe.
A new review shows the legacy of biogeography in planning and designing marine protected area networks, and gives new recommendations to increase their effectiveness under the rapid pace of climate change.
A new review uncovers the limited empirical evidence of edge effects on tropical forest biomass, and provides a conceptual framework and sampling protocol that unify landscape-level effects on biomass loss.
A new report on the Andean Amazon region shows that dams are more prevalent and have a greater impact than previously reported, and are likely to disrupt connectivity even more in the future.
A new analysis quantifies how well terrestrial protected area systems are designed to promote connectivity, and identifies country-specific priorities for improving protected area connectivity.
Samples from an urban river network in New Jersey show that invasive plant species use waterways just as well as natives, but large-scale, coordinated management may help keep them in check.
Community response to climate change is dependent on both species interactions and spatial structure, often in species- and context-specific ways.
Frogs and reptiles in agricultural Australia act as guinea pigs for testing the predictive ability of landscape models that focus on patch-matrix concepts.
Genetic variation in earthworms (yes, earthworms) is impacted by habitat fragmentation above-ground, where landscape features can act as barriers or corridors to those species underground.
