Landscape Corridors

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Habitat loss and fragmentation are two of the biggest drivers of species extinctions. A key strategy for mitigating these impacts is the protection and, where needed, re-establishment of connectivity among habitat patches. Landscape corridors are a primary way of ensuring such connectivity and the science behind corridor design and implementation has advanced dramatically in recent decades, particularly in terrestrial systems. Important research is needed to elucidate how corridors contribute to long-term population viability for multiple species, how restoration of degraded lands can contribute to connectivity, and how corridors can incorporate landscape and population dynamics in a rapidly changing world.
