Dynamic surface water distributions influence wetland connectivity within a highly modified interior landscape
Donnerstag, 12. April 2018
Abstract Context Animal movements are inherently linked to landscape structure. Understanding this relationship for highly-mobile species requires documenting their responses to spatiotemporal variability of resources. To that end, characterizing movement behaviors and resource distributions using the principles of habitat connectivity facilitates coordinated landscape planning efforts within highly modified landscapes...
Assessing and coping with uncertainties in landscape planning: an overview
Montag, 09. April 2018
Abstract Context Although uncertainties are ubiquitous in landscape planning, so far, no systematic understanding exists regarding how they should be assessed, appropriately communicated and what impacts they yield on decision support. With increasing interest in the role of uncertainties in science and policy, a synthesis of relevant knowledge is needed to further promote uncertainty assessment in landscape planning practice...
Temporal shifts in landscape connectivity for an ecosystem engineer, the roe deer, across a multiple-use landscape
Samstag, 07. April 2018
Abstract Context Routine movements of large herbivores, often considered as ecosystem engineers, impact key ecological processes. Functional landscape connectivity for such species influences the spatial distribution of associated ecological services and disservices. Objectives We studied how spatio-temporal variation in the risk-resource trade-off...
Using topographic geodiversity to connect conservation lands in the Central Yukon, Alaska
Sonntag, 01. April 2018
Abstract Context Alaskan landscapes are changing due to climate change impacts. Maintaining or restoring landscape connectivity is a widely suggested climate change adaptation strategy because species are shifting their distributions to align with emerging conditions. Natural resource managers in Alaska have an opportunity to proactively design connected landscapes as infrastructure networks and economic development continue to...
Seeing the oakscape beyond the forest: a landscape approach to the oak regeneration in Europe
Sonntag, 01. April 2018
Abstract Context Intensification and specialisation of agriculture and forest use has led to profound structural and compositional changes in European landscapes. In particular, sharp, narrow edges adjacent to relatively homogenous vegetation types progressively replace transitional habitats, crucial for a plethora of species and ecological processes. Quercus robur and Q. petraea regeneration niches make them best adapted to...
Spatiotemporal patterns, relationships, and drivers of China’s agricultural ecosystem services from 1980 to 2010: a multiscale analysis
Sonntag, 01. April 2018
Abstract Context During the past three decades, China’s agroecosystem has undergone dramatic alterations because of changes in climatic and management factors, which threatened agricultural sustainability. Objectives We investigated how climatic and management factors affected agricultural ecosystem services (AES...
Planning for the future: identifying conservation priority areas for Iberian birds under climate change
Sonntag, 01. April 2018
Abstract Context Species are expected to shift their distributions in response to global environmental changes and additional protected areas are needed to encompass the corresponding changes in the distributions of their habitats. Conservation policies are likely to become obsolete unless they integrate the potential impacts of climate and land-use change on biodiversity...
Evaluating static and dynamic landscape connectivity modelling using a 25-year remote sensing time series
Sonntag, 01. April 2018
Abstract Context Despite calls for landscape connectivity research to account for spatiotemporal dynamics, studies have overwhelmingly evaluated the importance of habitats for connectivity at single or limited moments in time. Remote sensing time series represent a promising resource for studying connectivity within dynamic ecosystems. However, there is a critical need to assess how static and dynamic landscape connectivity...
Reading past landscapes: combining modern and historical records, maps, pollen-based vegetation reconstructions, and the socioeconomic background
Sonntag, 01. April 2018
Abstract Context Anthropogenic and environmental changes are reshaping landscapes across the globe. In this context, understanding the patterns, drivers, and consequences of these changes is one of the central challenges of humankind. Purpose We aim to test the possibilities of combining modern multidisciplinary approaches to reconstruct the...
Disentangling the effects of habitat, connectivity and interspecific competition in the range expansion of exotic and native ungulates
Sonntag, 01. April 2018
Abstract Context Wild medium-sized ungulate populations are recovering in many countries of the Northern Hemisphere due to abandonment of rural areas but also due to the translocation of native and exotic ungulates for game hunting. Objectives To assess the role of landscape connectivity, habitat suitability and interspecific interactions...
Modeling carbon storage across a heterogeneous mixed temperate forest: the influence of forest type specificity on regional-scale carbon storage estimates
Sonntag, 01. April 2018
Abstract Purpose Accurately assessing forest carbon storage on a landscape scale is critical to understanding global carbon cycles and the effects of land cover changes on ecological processes. Calculations of regional-scale forest carbon storage that rely on maps of land cover typically reflect only coarse forest classes. How differences in carbon stored by different tree species may affect such assessments is largely...
Linking ecosystem services, urban form and green space configuration using multivariate landscape metric analysis
Sonntag, 01. April 2018
Abstract Context Landscape metrics represent powerful tools for quantifying landscape structure, but uncertainties persist around their interpretation. Urban settings add unique considerations, containing habitat structures driven by the surrounding built-up environment. Understanding urban ecosystems, however, should focus on the habitats rather than the matrix...
Spatial and temporal variability of fragmentation effects in a long term, eucalypt forest fragmentation experiment
Sonntag, 01. April 2018
Abstract Context Although forest fragmentation is generally thought to impact tree growth and mortality negatively, recent work suggests some forests are resilient. Experimental forests provide an opportunity to examine the timing and extent of forest tree resilience to disturbance from fragmentation. Objectives We used the Wog Wog Habitat...
Living on the edge: utilising lidar data to assess the importance of vegetation structure for avian diversity in fragmented woodlands and their edges
Abstract Context In agricultural landscapes, small woodland patches can be important wildlife refuges. Their value in maintaining biodiversity may, however, be compromised by isolation, and so knowledge about the role of habitat structure is vital to understand the drivers of diversity. This study examined how avian diversity and abundance were related to habitat structure in four small woods in an agricultural landscape in eastern...
A social-ecological approach to land-use conflict to inform regional and conservation planning and management
Abstract Context Conflict over land use is endemic to natural resource management given the limited availability of resources and multiple stakeholders’ interests, but there has been limited research to examine conflict from an integrative social-ecological perspective. Objectives We sought to determine how the potential for land use conflict—a social...
Activating landscape ecology: a governance framework for design-in-science
Abstract Context In response to predominantly local and private approaches to landscape change, landscape ecologists should critically assess the multiscalar influences on landscape design. Objectives This study develops a governance framework for Nassauer and Opdam’s “Design-in-Science” model. Its objective is to create an approach for examining...
Modelling biodiversity trends in the montado (wood pasture) landscapes of the Alentejo, Portugal
Abstract Context Montados are dynamic agroforestry systems of southern Portugal, with high economic and ecological values. Changes in land use and cover have important implications for landscape-level biodiversity and its conservation. Objectives Our objectives were to evaluate the biodiversity values and trends in a montado system in the Alentejo, Portugal...
Multi-level, multi-scale habitat selection by a wide-ranging, federally threatened snake
Abstract Context Although multi-scale approaches are commonly used to assess wildlife-habitat relationships, few studies have examined selection at multiple spatial scales within different hierarchical levels/orders of selection [sensu Johnson’s (1980) orders of selection]. Failure to account for multi-scale relationships within a single level of selection may lead to misleading inferences and predictions...
Ground cover increases spatial aggregation and association of insect herbivores and their predators in an agricultural landscape
Abstract Context Enhancing ground cover vegetation is an important agricultural practice that regulates herbivore and predator insects in agricultural landscapes. However, the effects of ground cover on the spatial distributions of these organisms have scarcely been explored. Objectives Our goal was to measure the effects of ground cover on the spatial...
