Integrating airborne lidar and satellite imagery to model habitat connectivity dynamics for spatial conservation prioritization
Samstag, 20. Januar 2018
Abstract Context The application of regional-level airborne lidar (light detection and ranging) data to characterize habitat patches and model habitat connectivity over large landscapes has not been well explored. Maintaining a connected network of habitat in the presence of anthropogenic disturbances is essential for regional-level conservation planning and the maintenance of biodiversity values...
Community heterogeneity of aquatic macroinvertebrates in urban ponds at a multi-city scale
Mittwoch, 17. Januar 2018
Abstract Purpose Urbanisation is a leading cause of biotic homogenisation in urban ecosystems. However, there has been little research examining the effect of urbanisation and biotic homogenisation on aquatic communities, and few studies have compared findings across different urban landscapes. We assessed the processes that structure aquatic macroinvertebrate diversity within five UK cities and characterise the heterogeneity of pond...
Matrix transformation alters species-area relationships in fragmented coastal forests
Mittwoch, 17. Januar 2018
Abstract Context Ecological theory suggests that large habitat fragments should harbour more species than small fragments. However, this may depend on the surrounding matrix. Matrices in fragmented landscapes may either amplify or reduce area effects, which could influence predicted extinctions based on species-area relationships (SARs). Objective To...
Connectivity analysis as a tool for assessing restoration success
Mittwoch, 17. Januar 2018
Abstract Context Methods for measuring restoration success that include functional connectivity between species’ populations are rare in landscape ecology and restoration practices. We developed an approach that analyzes connectivity between populations of target species and their dispersal probabilities to assess restoration success based on easily accessible input data. Applying this method to landscape development scenarios can...

Connectivity or area: what drives plant species richness in habitat corridors?
Samstag, 06. Januar 2018
Abstract Context The relative importance of habitat area and connectivity for species richness is often unknown. Connectivity effects may be confounded with area effects or they may be of minor importance as posited by the habitat-amount hypothesis. Objectives We studied effects of habitat area and connectivity of linear landscape elements for plant species...
Linking macrodetritivore distribution to desiccation resistance in small forest fragments embedded in agricultural landscapes in Europe
Samstag, 06. Januar 2018
Abstract Purpose Most of the agricultural landscape in Europe, and elsewhere, consists of mosaics with scattered fragments of semi-natural habitat like small forest fragments. Mutual interactions between forest fragments and agricultural areas influence ecosystem processes such as nutrient cycling, a process strongly mediated by the macrodetritivore community, which is however, poorly studied. We investigated macrodetritivore...
HexSim: a modeling environment for ecology and conservation
Samstag, 06. Januar 2018
Abstract Context Simulation models are increasingly used in both theoretical and applied studies to explore system responses to natural and anthropogenic forcing functions, develop defensible predictions of future conditions, challenge simplifying assumptions that facilitated past research, and to train students in scientific concepts and technology. Researcher’s increased use of simulation models has created a demand for new...
Thinking outside the patch: a multi-species comparison of conceptual models from real-world landscapes
Dienstag, 26. Dezember 2017
Abstract Context When modeling a species’ distribution, landscapes can alternatively be conceptualized following patch- or gradient-based approaches. However, choosing the most suitable conceptualization is difficult and methods for empirical validation are still lacking. Objectives To address the conditions under which a given conceptual model is more...
Forest recovery since 1860 in a Mediterranean region: drivers and implications for land use and land cover spatial distribution
Donnerstag, 21. Dezember 2017
Abstract Context Land use and land cover (LULC) change is a major part of environmental change. Understanding its long-term causes is a major issue in landscape ecology. Objectives Our aim was to characterise LULC transitions since 1860 and assess the respective and changing effects of biophysical and socioeconomic drivers on forest, arable land and pasture...
Walkability in urban landscapes: a comparative study of four large cities in China
Donnerstag, 21. Dezember 2017
Abstract Context Walkability is an important element for assessing the sustainability of urban landscapes. There are increased concerns that as the world becomes more urbanized, cities become less walkable. Objectives We aim to develop a composite walkability index to evaluate the spatio-temporal pattern of the walkability of cities. By using the index to...
Ecological network design from occurrence data by simulating species perception of the landscape
Montag, 18. Dezember 2017
Abstract Context Ecological networks are often designed based on the degree of suitability and permeability of land cover classes, as obtained by estimating the statistical relationships between occurrence data and classes coverage using habitat suitability models (HSMs). Considering only the classes coverage, but not their spatial arrangement, frequently prevents HSMs from correctly identifying nodes and connectivity elements...
Is it common to be rare on the landscape? A test using a novel model system
Mittwoch, 13. Dezember 2017
Abstract Context Understanding how rare species are distributed can be difficult due to heterogeneity between landscape units. Lack of statistical replication of landscapes can make it difficult to carry out testing. Model systems may be a solution. Objectives We test whether lichen thalli along the trunk of a tree are analogous to habitat patches in a...
Modeling relative habitat suitability of southern Florida for invasive Burmese pythons ( Python molurus bivittatus )
Freitag, 08. Dezember 2017
Abstract Context Invasive Burmese pythons are altering the ecology of southern Florida and their distribution is expanding northward. Understanding their habitat use is an important step in understanding the pathways of the invasion. Objectives This study identifies key landscape variables in predicting relative habitat suitability for pythons at the...
Correction to: Pasteur’s quadrant: an appealing ecophronetic alternative to the prevalent Bohr’s quadrant in ecosystem services research
Montag, 04. Dezember 2017
Abstract In the original publication, in Fig. 1 caption, the text “American history scholar Paul Johnson” should be replaced with “British history scholar Paul Johnson”.
A practical method for creating a digital topographic surface for ecological plots using ground-based measurements
Montag, 04. Dezember 2017
Abstract Context Digital elevation models (DEMs) are widely used in landscape ecology to link topographic features with biotic and abiotic factors. However, to date, high-resolution, affordable, and easy to process elevation data are not available for many regions. Objectives Here we propose a field-based method for efficiently and inexpensively collecting...

Identifying environmental drivers of spatial genetic structure of the European pine marten ( Martes martes )
Freitag, 01. Dezember 2017
Abstract Context In a global context of erosion of biodiversity, the current environmental policy in Europe is oriented towards the creation and the preservation of ecological networks for wildlife. However, most of the management guidelines arose from a structural landscape diagnostic without truly taking into consideration species’ needs. Objectives...
Landscape context drives breeding habitat selection by an enigmatic grassland songbird
Freitag, 01. Dezember 2017
Abstract Purpose Wildlife conservation requires understanding how landscape context influences habitat selection at spatial scales broader than the territory or habitat patch. Objectives We assessed how landscape composition, fragmentation, and disturbance affected occurrence and within-season site-fidelity of a declining grassland songbird...
