Conservation Corridor Digests
Human-leopard conflict in Pakistan is fueled by human encroachment in corridors and the greater availability of livestock compared to natural prey.
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.
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.
Corridor creation by the group Borderlands Restoration leads to a "restoration economy" that helps both the land and the people living on 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 [...]
Since its detection in the late 1960s in Colorado, chronic wasting disease (CWD) has affected thousands of cervids in 20 U.S. states and 2 Canadian provinces, and was recently detected in Europe. Understanding exactly how [...]
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 [...]
Interstates, highways, roads - these all act as barriers to movement for plants and animals. Efforts to build underpasses and overpasses in places such as Banff National Park or the Netherlands wildlife have helped keep [...]
Housing development will limit the ability of the National Wildlife Refuge System to respond to climate change
The U. S. National Wildlife Refuge System (NWRS) represents a large network of high priority conservation areas. Like all other protected areas around the globe, the refuges are likely to experience shifts in habitat composition [...]
Is the United States connected enough for plants and animals to respond to climate change? High levels of fragmentation throughout the country mean more barriers to movement if ranges shift under warming temperatures. The extent [...]
