Plant-pollinator networks in fragmented landscapes may be smaller and have fewer specialist species than those in connected habitats, potentially leading to losses of rare species and ecosystem function.
Ecological corridors help species deal with warming temperatures and habitat loss, but they can also be used by invasive species. Invasive squirrels in Italy may rely on these corridors to spread under climate change.
Two decades of research at an experimental corridor site show that connecting habitat increases the number of plant species at a constant rate each year, resulting in many more species in habitat patches connected by a corridor than in those that are isolated.
Migratory marine species don't see international boundaries, yet they cross them during long-distance migrations across oceans. A new synthesis study creates a prototype data system to support worldwide conservation efforts.
