Digests on the science of corridors
Genetic variation in earthworms (yes, earthworms) is impacted by habitat fragmentation above-ground, where landscape features can act as barriers or corridors to those species underground.
Bat diversity and morphogical traits vary between habitats such as protected forest, shade-grown coffee plantations, and open canopy tea plantations.
A new framework provides habitat network design principles to maintain connectivity in the face of land-use and climate change.
Take a look at the new Special Issue of Ecography, which features the latest research and ideas on habitat fragmentation and how to address it.
Streams and rivers that temporarily stop flowing may act as a valuable corridor for terrestrial vertebrates navigating a fragmented landscape.
Need to take a step back and catch up? Recent reviews of the past six month have focused on a wide variety of connectivity topics, from animal behavior to marine ecosystems and the applications of [...]
The Southeastern United States contains many rich and diverse ecosystems that serve as global hotspots for herpetofauna, freshwater mussels and fishes, and endemic flora. Many of these landscapes are also among the fastest developing areas [...]
