MulTyLink

MulTyLink is an open source application designed to select connectivity linkages for distinct types of habitats, under a cost-efficient protocol. Since areas that can be used as linkages for one type of habitats may be barriers for other types, MulTyLink implements methods to optimise the selection of linkages free of barriers for every type of habitat. MulTyLink was conceived as a decision-support tool to be used in spatial conservation planning.
