Benthic pattern formation in shallow tropical reefscapes: does grazing explain grazing halos?
Freitag, 02. April 2021
Abstract Context Species interactions generating consistent landscape or seascape patterns are important to ecosystem health and function. One widely-documented pattern in shallow, tropical reefscapes is sand “halos” that separate coral patches from surrounding vegetation. Multiple hypotheses for this pattern have been proposed, but individual explanations are rarely integrated to reflect the complexity of systems where halos...
Global review on interactions between insect pests and other forest disturbances
Donnerstag, 01. April 2021
Abstract Context Forest landscapes worldwide are shaped by abiotic drivers such as fire, windstorms, and drought, but also by biotic drivers like insect pests and pathogens. Although the effects of such drivers on forest dynamics have been studied extensively, knowledge of the interactions between insect pests and other drivers of change is still coarse and fragmented. Indeed, new invasive insect species and global change may...
Prioritizing landscapes for grassland bird conservation with hierarchical community models
Donnerstag, 01. April 2021
Abstract Context Given widespread population declines of birds breeding in North American grasslands, management that sustains wildlife while supporting rancher livelihoods is needed. However, management effects vary across landscapes, and identifying areas with the greatest potential bird response to conservation is a pressing research need. Objectives...

Climate change, habitat connectivity, and conservation gaps: a case study of four ungulate species endemic to the Tibetan Plateau
Donnerstag, 01. April 2021
Abstract Context Habitat connectivity is essential for the long-term persistence of species, but is commonly disregarded in climate change impact studies. The Tibetan Plateau contains a biome rich in endemic ungulates, which are highly sensitive to climatic variations and deserve particular attention in conservation planning against climate change. Objectives...
Quantifying ecological variation across jurisdictional boundaries in a management mosaic landscape
Donnerstag, 01. April 2021
Abstract Context Large landscapes exhibit natural heterogeneity. Land management can impose additional variation, altering ecosystem patterns. Habitat characteristics may reflect these management factors, potentially resulting in habitat differences that manifest along jurisdictional boundaries. Objectives We characterized the patchwork of...
Multi-taxon conservation in northern forest hot-spots: the role of forest characteristics and spatial scales
Donnerstag, 01. April 2021
Abstract Context Biodiversity is highly affected by industrial forestry, which leads to the loss and fragmentation of natural habitats. To date, most conservation studies have evaluated associations among a single species group, forest type, or spatial scale. Objective The objective was to evaluate the richness of multiple species groups...
