Most current marine reserves were designed without accounting for climate change. A new study quantifies whether redesigned reserves might be more ready for the future.
A novel microcosm experiment using a thermally sensitive ciliate shows that the distance between patches, and the quality of patches, can have big consequences for immigration and emigration.
While we often think about corridor design for large, far-ranging animals, less attention is paid to how we ensure that populations of invertebrates stay connected.
Forest species that evolved in high-disturbance ecosystems show less sensitivity to habitat edges, and are more prevalent in high-latitude regions.
Which plant species persist and spread in fragmented landscapes is determined by both their mode of dispersal, and the degree of connectivity within and among habitat types.
Several new studies explore how well connected protected areas are across the globe, the impact of climate change on them, and adaptation solutions for the future.
