Ecological corridors are one of the main strategies to help species deal with warming temperatures and loss of habitat, however they are also used by invasive species. Invasive squirrels in Italy may rely on these corridors for future 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.
