Spatial dynamics of coastal forest bird assemblages: the influence of landscape context, forest type, and structural connectivity
Abstract Context Complex structural connectivity patterns can influence the distribution of animals in coastal landscapes, particularly those with relatively large home ranges, such as birds. To understand the nuanced nature of coastal forest avifauna, where there may be considerable overlap in assemblages of adjacent forest types, the concerted influence of regional landscape context and vegetative structural connectivity at...
Landscape potential for pollen provisioning for beneficial insects favours biological control in crop fields
Abstract Context The importance of landscape complexity for biological control is well-known, but its functional roles are poorly understood. Objectives We evaluated the landscape capacity to provide floral resources for beneficial insects and its consequences for biological control in fields...
Modelling shifts between mono- and multifunctional farming systems: the importance of social and economic drivers
Abstract Context In Europe, policy measures are starting to emerge that promote multifunctional farming systems and delivery of ecosystem services besides food production. Effectiveness of these policy instruments have to deal with ecological, economic and social complexities and with complexities in individual decisions of local actors leading to system shifts...
Forecasts of urbanization scenarios reveal trade-offs between landscape change and ecosystem services
Abstract Context Expansion of urban settlements has caused observed declines in ecosystem services (ES) globally, further stressing the need for informed urban development and policies. Incorporating ES concepts into the decision making process has been shown to support resilient and functional ecosystems. Coupling land change and ES models allows for insights into the impacts and anticipated trade-offs of specific policy...
Habitat alteration and habitat fragmentation differentially affect beta diversity of stream fish communities
Abstract Context The cumulative impact of broad scale environmental change includes altered land-cover and fragmentation. Both altered land-cover and fragmentation have a negative effect on species diversity, but the scale they act on may differ because land-cover alters environmental characteristics, whereas fragmentation alters movement among sites. Objectives...
Landscape heterogeneity enhances stability of wild bee abundance under highly varying temperature, but not under highly varying precipitation
Abstract Context The abundance of important providers of ecosystem services such as wild bees likely increases with landscape heterogeneity, but may also fluctuate across the flowering season following varying weather conditions. Objectives In the present study, we investigated the combined effect of landscape heterogeneity and intra-annual...
Using multiple metrics to estimate seasonal landscape connectivity for Blanding’s turtles ( Emydoidea blandingii ) in a fragmented landscape
Abstract Context Landscapes and animal behavior can exhibit temporal variability and connectivity estimates should consider this phenomenon. In many species, timing of activities such as nesting, mate searching, and hibernation occurs during distinct periods in which movement events may differ, along with physical characteristics of the surrounding landscape...
Scale-specific habitat relationships influence patch occupancy: defining neighborhoods to optimize the effectiveness of landscape-scale grassland bird conservation
Abstract Context Beyond the recognized importance of protecting large areas of contiguous habitat, conservation efforts for many species are complicated by the fact that patch suitability may also be affected by characteristics of the landscape within which the patch is located. Currently, little is known about the spatial scales at which species respond to different aspects of the landscape surrounding an occupied patch...
Multifunctionality at what scale? A landscape multifunctionality assessment for the European Union under conditions of land use change
Abstract Context The provision of multiple ecosystem services (ES) within a landscape is commonly referred to as landscape multifunctionality. Modifying landscapes to increase multifunctionality and reduce trade-offs with concurrent services bears the potential to enhance sustainability in human-dominated landscapes. Assessing landscape multifunctionality is thus crucial for land management and planning, but lack of a clear...
A multi-scale analysis of western spruce budworm outbreak dynamics
Abstract Context Forest insect outbreaks are influenced by ecological processes operating at multiple spatial scales, including host-insect interactions within stands and across landscapes that are modified by regional-scale variations in climate. These drivers of outbreak dynamics are not well understood for the western spruce budworm, a defoliator that is native to forests of western North America...
Wildfire and exotic grass invasion alter plant productivity in response to climate variability in the Mojave Desert
Abstract Context Annual grass invasions often increase the frequency and extent of wildfire. Climate variability and fire history may have modifying effects on invasion success and its link to changing fire regimes. Objective Characterize the role of climate variability and fire history in vegetation shifts of an invaded desert landscape...
Distribution of invasive plants in urban environment is strongly spatially structured
Abstract Context Urban environments create a wide range of habitats that harbour a great diversity of plant species, many of which are of alien origin. For future urban planning and management of the green areas within the city, understanding of the spatial distribution of invasive alien species is of great importance. Objectives Our main aim...
Species absence in developed landscapes: an experimental evaluation
Abstract Context Conversion of landscapes is widely associated with loss of biodiversity. While there are several competing hypotheses for the local extinction of species in developed landscapes, experimental approaches are seldom applied to elucidating mechanisms. Objectives In this study, we focus on the habitat degradation hypothesis and...
Time-delayed influence of urban landscape change on the susceptibility of koalas to chlamydiosis
Abstract Context Infectious diseases are important in the dynamics of many wildlife populations, but there is limited understanding of how landscape change influences susceptibility to disease. Objectives We aimed to quantify the time-delayed influence of spatial and temporal components of landscape change and climate variability on the...
Estimating density of a territorial species in a dynamic landscape
Abstract Context Conservation planning for at-risk species requires understanding of where species are likely to occur, how many individuals are likely to be supported on a given landscape, and the ability to monitor those changes through time. Objectives We developed a distribution model for northern spotted owls that incorporates both...
Agent-based modeling of complex social–ecological feedback loops to assess multi-dimensional trade-offs in dryland ecosystem services
Donnerstag, 23. Februar 2017
Abstract Context Recent conceptual developments in ecosystem services research have revealed the need to elucidate the complex and unintended relationships between humans and the environment if we are to better understand and manage ecosystem services in practice. Objectives This study aimed to develop a model that spatially represents a complex...
Sensitivity of resource selection and connectivity models to landscape definition
Mittwoch, 22. Februar 2017
Abstract Context The definition of the geospatial landscape is the underlying basis for species-habitat models, yet sensitivity of habitat use inference, predicted probability surfaces, and connectivity models to landscape definition has received little attention. Objectives We evaluated the sensitivity of resource selection and connectivity models to four...
The influence of landscape relative to site and patch variables on primate distributions in the Colombian Llanos
Dienstag, 21. Februar 2017
Abstract Context Primates are an important component of biodiversity in tropical regions. However, many studies on the effects of habitat change on primates ignore the relative influence of landscape composition and configuration. Objectives This study addresses the question: how important are landscape-scale forest area and composition relative to...
