LandScape Corridors

LandScape Corridors (LSCorridors) uses a resistance surface map to generate multiple corridors between multiple source-target locations inside the map. To accomplish that, it uses species habitat requirement information and a least-cost path algorithm. The package also includes stochasticity at different levels and enables different simulation methods.
