Fine-scale temporal and spatial population fluctuations of medium sized carnivores in a Mediterranean agricultural matrix
Donnerstag, 01. Juni 2017
Abstract Context Many Mediterranean ecosystems are human-dominated landscapes comprising a mosaic of agricultural, natural and semi-natural habitats alongside urban areas. The size, spatial pattern and connectivity of these “mosaic landscapes” promote changes in wildlife behavior, movement patterns and habitat use. Objectives Study how...
Spatially explicit quantification of the interactions among ecosystem services
Donnerstag, 01. Juni 2017
Abstract Context Human demands for ecosystem services (ES) have tremendously changed the landscape and led to degradation of ecosystems and associated services. The resolving of current eco-environmental problems calls for better understanding of the spatially explicit ES interactions to guide targeted land-use policy-making. Objectives We...
A neutral modeling approach for designing spatially heterogeneous jack pine plantations in northern Lower Michigan, USA
Donnerstag, 01. Juni 2017
Abstract Context Jack pine-dominated ecosystems in northern Lower Michigan are heavily managed using a harvesting and planting regime designed to provide breeding habitat for the federally endangered Kirtland’s warbler. These plantations do not resemble naturally-regenerated patterns of jack pine, but few data exist after which alternate planting configurations may be modeled...
Circuit theory to estimate natal dispersal routes and functional landscape connectivity for an endangered small mammal
Donnerstag, 01. Juni 2017
Abstract Context Natal dispersal links population dynamics to landscape connectivity. Understanding how organisms perceive barriers to movement, or landscape resistance, during natal dispersal is important to conserve and manage populations threatened by fragmentation and habitat loss. Objectives We aimed to (1) model probability of landscape...
Ecological differences and limiting factors in different regional contexts: landscape genetics of the stone marten in the Iberian Peninsula
Donnerstag, 01. Juni 2017
Abstract Context Landscape genetics focuses on quantifying relationships between landscape features and gene flow. Most past landscape genetic studies have addressed relationships between landscape structure and genetic differentiation in single study areas. However, failure to investigate multiple areas across a species range could produce misleading inferences about which landscape variables generally limit gene flow in a...
Landscape-scale mass-action of spiders explains early-season immigration rates in crops
Donnerstag, 01. Juni 2017
Abstract Context Early-season immigration into arable fields by natural enemies is key for effective biocontrol, but little is known about the mechanisms underlying immigration processes. Objectives Here we test the mass action hypothesis for ballooning spiders, stating that local immigration rates are positively related to the amount of...
Why non-native grasses pose a critical emerging threat to biodiversity conservation, habitat connectivity and agricultural production in multifunctional rural landscapes
Donnerstag, 01. Juni 2017
Abstract Context Landscape-scale conservation planning is key to the protection of biodiversity globally. Central to this approach is the development of multifunctional rural landscapes (MRLs) that maintain the viability of natural ecosystems and promote animal and plant dispersal alongside agricultural land uses. Objectives We investigate...
A hierarchy-based solution to calculate the configurational entropy of landscape gradients
Donnerstag, 01. Juni 2017
Abstract Context The second law of thermodynamics is fundamental in landscape ecology, and Shannon entropy has been employed as an important means of analyzing landscape patterns. However, the thermodynamic basis of Shannon entropy has been recently questioned because such entropy considers only probability and not configurational information. As a result, Boltzmann entropy (also called configurational entropy), which is the...
The proximate causes of asymmetric movement across heterogeneous landscapes
Donnerstag, 01. Juni 2017
Abstract Context Asymmetric movements, in which the probability of moving from patch i to patch j is not necessarily the same as moving in the opposite direction, may be the rule more than the exception in nature where organisms move through spatially heterogeneous environments. Empirical tests of dispersal asymmetries are rare with even fewer tests of the mechanisms driving such patterns...
Modeling the long-term effects of introduced herbivores on the spread of an invasive tree
Donnerstag, 01. Juni 2017
Abstract Context Melaleuca quinquenervia (Cav.) Blake (hereafter melaleuca) is an invasive tree from Australia that has spread over the freshwater ecosystems of southern Florida, displacing native vegetation, thus threatening native biodiversity. Suppression of melaleuca appears to be progressing through the introduction of insect species, the weevil, Oxiops vitiosa, and the psyllid...
Temporal variation and spatial scale dependency of ecosystem service interactions: a case study on the central Loess Plateau of China
Donnerstag, 01. Juni 2017
Abstract Contexts An important feature of ecosystem service interaction is that it changes over time and across spatial scales. Objectives This research aims to find which ecosystem service interactions temporally vary and depend on spatial scale. Methods We...
Modeling forest landscapes in a changing climate: theory and application

A multi-method approach to delineate and validate migratory corridors
Freitag, 26. Mai 2017
Abstract Context Managers are faced with numerous methods for delineating wildlife movement corridors, and often must make decisions with limited data. Delineated corridors should be robust to different data and models. Objectives We present a multi-method approach for delineating and validating wildlife corridors using multiple data sources, which can be...
Alternative characterization of forest fire regimes: incorporating spatial patterns
Donnerstag, 25. Mai 2017
Abstract Context The proportion of fire area that experienced stand-replacing fire effects is an important attribute of individual fires and fire regimes in forests, and this metric has been used to group forest types into characteristic fire regimes. However, relying on proportion alone ignores important spatial characteristics of stand-replacing patches, which can have a strong influence on post-fire vegetation dynamics...
Step-wise drops in modularity and the fragmentation of exploited marine metapopulations
Mittwoch, 24. Mai 2017
Abstract Context Many nearshore species are distributed in habitat patches connected only through larval dispersal. Genetic research has shown some spatial structure of such metapopulations and modeling studies have shed light onto possible patterns of connectivity and barriers. However, little is known about human impact on their spatial structure and patterns of connectivity...
Interactive effects of landscape-wide intensity of farming practices and landscape complexity on wild bee diversity
Dienstag, 23. Mai 2017
Abstract Context The local intensity of farming practices is considered as an important driver of biodiversity in agricultural landscapes and its effect on biodiversity has been shown to interact with landscape complexity. But the influence of landscape-wide intensity of farming practices on biodiversity and its combined effect with landscape complexity have been little...
Participatory mapping of landscape values in a Pan-European perspective
Montag, 22. Mai 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 the current...
Multiple-scale prediction of forest loss risk across Borneo
Donnerstag, 18. Mai 2017
Abstract Context The forests of Borneo have among the highest biodiversity and also the highest forest loss rates on the planet. Objectives Our objectives were to: (1) compare multiple modelling approaches, (2) evaluate the utility of landscape composition and configuration as predictors, (3) assess the influence of the ratio of forest loss and persistence...
Priority questions for the science, policy and practice of cultural landscapes in Europe
Samstag, 13. Mai 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. Objectives and...
Landscape and local correlates with anuran taxonomic, functional and phylogenetic diversity in rice crops
Freitag, 12. Mai 2017
Abstract Context Deforestation is a major driver of biodiversity loss, mainly due to agriculture. As rice is among the world’s most important crops, determining how agricultural communities are shaped is imperative. However, few studies have addressed the factors that alter community assembly in human-modified landscapes. We aim to quantify taxonomic, functional, trait and phylogenetic diversity of an anuran community from...
