Contrasting edge and pasture matrix effects on ant diversity from fragmented landscapes across multiple spatial scales
Montag, 10. Mai 2021
Abstract Objectives Harmful effects of habitat loss and fragmentation can be detected across multiple spatial scales, yet most studies that aim to characterize these effects take place at a single spatial scale. Here we investigated responses in ant diversity to forest fragmentation across three spatial scales. Methods We sampled ant diversity in a...
Linking land change model evaluation to model objective for the assessment of land cover change impacts on biodiversity
Mittwoch, 05. Mai 2021
Abstract Context Evaluation of land cover change (LCC) is commonly done at the pixel level; however, the model’s purpose may be relevant at a different grain size. Thus, the same model may be good for one purpose but inappropriate for another. For conservation applications, it is crucial to assess land change simulations at the grain relevant for the assessment of biodiversity impacts...

Location of greenspace matters: a new approach to investigating the effect of the greenspace spatial pattern on urban heat environment
Samstag, 01. Mai 2021
Abstract Context Although many prior efforts have found that both spatial composition and configuration of greenspaces significantly affect the urban heat environment globally, the spatially heterogeneous effects of greenspace spatial patterns on the urban heat environment remain poorly understood for urban spaces. Objectives We proposed a...
Dynamics and fate of blue carbon in a mangrove–seagrass seascape: influence of landscape configuration and land-use change
Samstag, 01. Mai 2021
Abstract Context Seagrass meadows act as efficient natural carbon sinks by sequestering atmospheric CO2 and through trapping of allochthonous organic material, thereby preserving organic carbon (Corg) in their sediments. Less understood is the influence of landscape configuration and transformation (land-use change) on carbon sequestration dynamics in coastal seascapes across the land–sea interface...
Movements of birds of prey reveal the importance of tree lines, small woods and forest edges in agricultural landscapes
Samstag, 01. Mai 2021
Abstract Context Small woody features (SWF; tree lines and small woods) in agricultural landscapes provide a substitute for forest conditions for a wide range of species and a suitable edge habitat for ecotone species. The importance of SWF for biodiversity is usually inferred from presence or abundance data for small animals. Although large animals, due to their lower density are less likely to be attributed with SWF, they may...
Human health risks of invasive caterpillars increase with urban warming
Samstag, 01. Mai 2021
Abstract Context Development and survival vary across a species’ geographic range and are also affected by local conditions like urban warming, which may drive changes in biology that magnify or reduce the risks of hazardous organisms to people. Larvae of the pine processionary moth (Thaumetopoea pityocampa Schiff; PPM) are covered with setae (hair-like structures) that cause allergic reactions in warm-blooded vertebrates...
Long and lasting: spatial patterns and temporal trends in a fish community responding to landscape-scale hydrological restoration of a coastal freshwater wetland complex
Samstag, 01. Mai 2021
Abstract Context Freshwater wetlands, including those in coastal regions, are among the most important, albeit threatened, environments worldwide. Beyond protection, restoration is urgently required to halt the trend of wetland loss. Restoring natural hydrology offers potential to achieve this by landscape-scale rehabilitation of wetland habitat and connectivity for aquatic biodiversity, including freshwater fishes...
Extending vegetation site data and ensemble models to predict patterns of foliage cover and species richness for plant functional groups
Samstag, 01. Mai 2021
Abstract Context Ensembles of artificial neural network models can be trained to predict the continuous characteristics of vegetation such as the foliage cover and species richness of different plant functional groups. Objectives Our first objective was to synthesise existing site-based observations of native plant species to quantify summed...
A rocky heart in a spinifex sea: occurrence of an endangered marsupial predator is multiscale dependent in naturally fragmented landscapes
Samstag, 01. Mai 2021
Abstract Context Research on the impacts of anthropogenic habitat fragmentation has dominated landscape ecology for decades, yet our understanding of what drives species’ distributions in naturally fragmented landscapes remains limited. Objectives We aimed to (i) determine whether rocky patches embedded within a ‘matrix’ of fire prone...
Effects of free-ranging livestock on sympatric herbivores at fine spatiotemporal scales
Samstag, 01. Mai 2021
Abstract Context Livestock grazing is one of the most widespread types of anthropogenic land use, even occurs in many protected areas and has become a threat to wildlife worldwide. Understanding livestock-wildlife interactions is crucial for rare large carnivores conservation. In China, free-ranging cattle within forests degrade the habitat of the tigers (Panthera tigris) and leopards (Panthera pardus), but quantitative...
Permeability of commercial landscapes: integrating plantation forest trackways into ecological networks
Samstag, 01. Mai 2021
Abstract Context Reconnecting fragmented habitat is a major challenge in biodiversity conservation. It is especially important in landscapes that have undergone significant change through agriculture and forestry conversion. This is particularly prevalent within heathland regions across Western Europe where remaining fragments are significantly isolated in intensely managed landscapes...
Changing climate requires shift from refugia to sanctuaries for floodplain forests
Samstag, 01. Mai 2021
Abstract Context Riparian areas are considered to undergo major alterations under changing climate, making floodplain habitats targets for conservation and landscape planning. Protected areas might provide sanctuaries especially for sessile riparian plant species, but these niches are not always persistent over time. Objectives We investigate...
Testing the habitat amount hypothesis and fragmentation effects for medium- and large-sized mammals in a biodiversity hotspot
Samstag, 01. Mai 2021
Abstract Context Habitat loss is widely recognized as the main driver of biodiversity loss around the globe, yet the effects of habitat fragmentation on biodiversity have been extensively debated in recent years. Objectives We used a robust dataset of medium and large-sized mammals to test (a) the Habitat Amount Hypothesis, which postulates...
Linking the minimum spanning tree and edge betweenness to understand arterial corridors in an ecological network
Samstag, 01. Mai 2021
Abstract Context Redundancy is a typical characteristic of complex networks. In ecological networks, redundancy also exists in the connectivity between key nodes. Understanding the redundant structure of an ecological network and identifying the backbone structure is very important in maintaining the stability of the ecological network system. Objectives...
Remote sensing of trophic cascades: multi‐temporal landsat imagery reveals vegetation change driven by the removal of an apex predator
Samstag, 01. Mai 2021
Abstract Context Trophic cascade theory predicts that predators indirectly benefit plants by limiting herbivore consumption. As humans have removed large predators from most terrestrial ecosystems the effect of their absence is unrecognized. Objectives A manipulation of dingo populations across Australia’s dingo-proof fence, within the...
The use of transects for resilient design: core theories and contemporary projects
Samstag, 01. Mai 2021
Abstract Context The concept of the transect is derived from a scientific method of investigating a sequence of environments by sampling geographical cross-sections of the target region. Many environmental theorists, including Patrick Geddes and Ian McHarg, have adopted the transect to pursue an ideal relationship between nature and human settlement. Transect planning provides an essential perspective on and transdisciplinary...
Fruit orchards and woody semi-natural habitat provide complementary resources for pollinators in agricultural landscapes
Samstag, 01. Mai 2021
Abstract Context To safeguard insect pollinators and their pollination services, we need to understand how landscape structure regulates the distribution of resources that sustain pollinator populations. However, evidence of how pollinator communities benefit from the variety of resources distributed across different habitat types is scarce. Objectives...
