Digests about corridors and climate change
A new study finds that habitat-based conservation strategies such as corridors and habitat restoration cannot sufficiently compensate species’ range loss caused by climate change.
The loss of sea ice due to climate change will likely have serious and largely unknown effects on animal movement in the Arctic.
Fish that migrate from sea to freshwater may struggle to adapt to climate change, especially if intersystem connectivity is blocked.
Incorporating climate projections into connectivity planning is crucial to protect species on the move
A climate-informed approach to connectivity mapping leads to more accurate and useful linkages in a human-modified landscape.
A nationwide climate change vulnerability assessment reveals potential pathways for thousands of plant species, but with different management implications.
Forest growth and carbon storage increase with proximity to the edge in temperate broadleaf forests, but edge effects also make forests more vulnerable to climate change.
