Digests on the science of corridors
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 [...]
When relying on a focal species or suite of species for corridor planning, we know that accurately identifying functional corridors depends on our understanding of those species’ dispersal requirements. But do our typical estimates of [...]
Most wildlife corridors, whether they are derived from simple least-cost path models or highly complex individual-based movement models, are run across a cost or resistance surface. Resistances represent an individual’s reluctance to cross a landscape [...]
Habitat loss and fragmentation are commonly regarded as being among the greatest threats to biodiversity. The impact of infrastructure development on wildlife populations, especially the construction of highways, has become an issue of increasing concern. [...]
The rapid increase over the last decade in the number of studies, methods and applications relating to habitat connectivity for biodiversity conservation highlights a growing research interest in this topic. In our recent paper, we [...]
