Anthropogenic disturbances strengthened tree community-environment relationships at the temperate-boreal interface
Donnerstag, 09. November 2017
Abstract Context Knowledge of how environmental gradients generate changes in community composition across forest landscapes (β-diversity) represents a critical issue in the era of global change, which exerts especially powerful impacts by shifting disturbance regimes. Objectives We analyzed the response of tree communities to increased disturbance rates...
Linking wind erosion to ecosystem services in drylands: a landscape ecological approach
Mittwoch, 08. November 2017
Abstract Context Wind erosion is a widespread environmental problem in the world’s arid landscapes, which threatens the sustainability of ecosystem services in these regions. Objectives We investigated how wind erosion and key ecosystem services changed concurrently and what major biophysical and socioeconomic factors were responsible for these changes in...
Resource depletion versus landscape complementation: habitat selection by a multiple central place forager
Mittwoch, 08. November 2017
Abstract Context The spatial distribution of non-substitutable resources implies diverging predictions for animal movement patterns. At broad scales, animals should respond to landscape complementation by selecting areas where resource patches are close-by to minimize movement costs. Yet at fine scales, central place effects lead to the depletion of patches that are close to one another and that should ultimately be avoided by...
Predicting effects of future development on a territorial forest songbird: methodology matters
Mittwoch, 08. November 2017
Abstract Context Projected increases in human population size are expected to increase forest loss and fragmentation in the next century at the expense of forest-dwelling species. Objectives We estimated landscape carrying capacity (N k) for Ovenbirds in urban, suburban, exurban, and rural areas for the years 2000 and 2050, and...

Priority questions for the science, policy and practice of cultural landscapes in Europe
Mittwoch, 01. November 2017
Abstract Context The design of effective responses to safeguard cultural landscape values in Europe needs collaborative action among the stakeholders involved. Despite considerable progress triggered by the European Landscape Convention (ELC) and other initiatives to link landscape science, policy and practice, a joint research–action agenda is still lacking...
Cultural landscapes of the future: using agent-based modeling to discuss and develop the use and management of the cultural landscape of South West Devon
Mittwoch, 01. November 2017
Abstract Context Hedgerows are typical landscape features of high environmental and cultural value that often have been sacrificed for agricultural intensification and scale enlargement. Objectives We studied the dynamics of hedgerow quality over time in a case study area renowned for its hedgerow landscapes: South West Devon (UK) answering...
The role of bioclimatic features, landscape configuration and historical land use in the invasion of an Asian tree in subtropical Argentina
Mittwoch, 01. November 2017
Abstract Context Knowing which factors determine the spread of plant invaders is a relevant issue in global ecology. Cultural landscapes both influence and are affected by exotic species. Although bioclimatic boundaries, seed sources and landscape configuration all control the invasion process, they have been mostly studied separately and independently from their distant drivers...
Participatory mapping of landscape values in a Pan-European perspective
Mittwoch, 01. November 2017
Abstract Context Human–nature interactions are reflected in the values people assign to landscapes. These values shape our understanding and actions as landscape co-creators, and need to be taken into account to achieve an integrated management of the landscape that involves civil society. Objectives The aim of this research was to increase...
Land-use regime shift triggered the recent degradation of alpine pastures in Nyanpo Yutse of the eastern Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau
Mittwoch, 01. November 2017
Abstract Context The eastern Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau is a cultural landscape where traditional pastoralism substantially shaped the present mosaic structure of the alpine grasslands. During the past two decades, however, severe grassland degradations of this region has been considered as the major ecological concern. Objectives In this study...
How do land-use legacies affect ecosystem services in United States cultural landscapes?
Mittwoch, 01. November 2017
Abstract Context Landscape-scale studies of ecosystem services (ES) have increased, but few consider land-use history. Historical land use may be especially important in cultural landscapes, producing legacies that influence ecosystem structure, function, and biota that in turn affect ES supply. Objectives Our goal was to generate a conceptual...
Processes and driving forces in changing cultural landscapes across Europe
Mittwoch, 01. November 2017
Abstract Context Cultural landscapes evolve over time. However, the rate and direction of change might not be in line with societal needs and more information on the forces driving these changes are therefore needed. Objectives Filling the gap between single case studies and meta-analyses, we present a comparative study of landscape changes...
Disaggregating ecosystem services and disservices in the cultural landscapes of southwestern Ethiopia: a study of rural perceptions
Mittwoch, 01. November 2017
Abstract Context Cultural landscapes provide essential ecosystem services to local communities, especially in poor rural settings. However, potentially negative impacts of ecosystems—or disservices—remain inadequately understood. Similarly, how benefit–cost outcomes differ within communities is unclear, but potentially important for cultural landscape management...
Predation risk across a dynamic landscape: effects of anthropogenic land use, natural landscape features, and prey distribution
Dienstag, 31. Oktober 2017
Abstract Purpose Human-mediated landscape changes alter habitat configuration, which strongly structures animal distributions and interspecific interactions. The effects of anthropogenic disturbance on predator–prey relationships are fundamental to ecology, yet less well understood. We determined where predation events occurred for fawn and adult female mule deer from 2008 to 2014 in critical winter range with extensive energy...
Using riparian Zone scaling to optimize buffer placement and effectiveness
Montag, 30. Oktober 2017
Abstract Context Riparian buffers reduce subsurface nutrient losses to streams but there is a clear need to identify and prioritize locations for riparian buffer placement to optimize buffer performance. Scaling relations can be used to extrapolate hydrologic behavior within river networks and across catchments. Objectives We combined field and laboratory...
Beetle’s responses to edges in fragmented landscapes are driven by adjacent farmland use, season and cross-habitat movement
Samstag, 28. Oktober 2017
Abstract Context Farming practices influence the degree of contrast between adjoining habitats, with consequences for biodiversity and species movement. Little is known, however, on insect community responses to different kinds of edges over time, and the extent of cross-habitat movement in agricultural landscapes. Objective To determine temporal changes in...
Accounting for spatial autocorrelation improves the estimation of climate, physical environment and vegetation’s effects on boreal forest’s burn rates
Dienstag, 24. Oktober 2017
Abstract Context Wildfires play a crucial role in maintaining ecological and societal functions of North American boreal forests. Because of their contagious way of spreading, using statistical methods dealing with spatial autocorrelation has become a major challenge in fire studies analyzing how environmental factors affect their spatial variability. Objectives...
Rules to write mathematics to clarify metrics such as the land use dynamic degrees
Dienstag, 24. Oktober 2017
Abstract Context Scientists frequently describe temporal change among land categories by reporting the single land use dynamic degree and the comprehensive land use dynamic degree (CLUDD). The original intention of CLUDD was to compute the annual change percentage, which is the size of annual change expressed as a percentage of the size of the spatial extent. However, the literature’s mathematical descriptions of CLUDD have been...
