Maintaining functional connectivity in grassland corridors between plantation forests promotes high-quality habitat and conserves range restricted grasshoppers
Donnerstag, 23. Juni 2022
Abstract Context Grassland corridors are set aside for biodiversity conservation within the commercial timber plantation landscape of South Africa, potentially connecting high value conservation areas together. However, the impact of the production landscape on functional connectivity within these corridors has not been investigated. Objectives We combine...
Multifunctional landscapes for enhanced ecosystem benefits and productive agriculture in the southeastern US
Donnerstag, 23. Juni 2022
Abstract Context Agricultural landscapes across the southeastern US are typically managed with little consideration for landscape scale ecosystem function despite potential hazards and benefits from ecosystem processes. Enhanced landscape function from less-intensive use of less-productive, erosive soils within large cropland landscapes combined with buffer areas along natural drainage patterns are potential approaches to ameliorate...
Drought-induced forest dieback increases taxonomic, functional, and phylogenetic diversity of saproxylic beetles at both local and landscape scales
Sonntag, 19. Juni 2022
Abstract Context Many forest ecosystems around the world are facing increasing drought-induced dieback, causing mortality patches across the landscape at multiple scales. This increases the supply of biological legacies and differentially affects forest insect communities. Objectives We analysed the relative effects of local- and landscape-level dieback on...
Comprehensively evaluating the performance of species distribution models across clades and resolutions: choosing the right tool for the job
Freitag, 17. Juni 2022
Abstract Context Species distribution modeling (SDM) is an integral tool for conservation, biogeography, and climate change biology. However, practioners have to choose from increasingly numerous SDM algorithms performing well under different conditions, including clade and resolution. Objectives To identify the most suitable SDM algorithms for trees, birds...
Zooscape ecology: a conceptual analysis of zoos and landscape ecology
Donnerstag, 16. Juni 2022
Abstract Context Zoos are a unique landscape with fascinating connections to the principles of landscape ecology. These ‘zooscapes’ have a focus on managing wild species. Objectives This article examines the multiple scales of zoos as urban green spaces, exhibit landscapes, and resources for resilience. I identify that landscape ecology can inform zoo...
Modelling inter-pixel spatial variation of surface urban heat island intensity
Donnerstag, 16. Juni 2022
Abstract Context Surface urban heat island intensity (SUHII) is a classical measure depicting urban heat island phenomenon via remotely sensed thermal infrared data. The most common approach is to compare urban and rural land surface temperatures (LST), which is not only sensitive to the selection of pixels/measurements representative of urban and rural areas, but also overlook the pixel-level intra-city SUHII variation and...
The association strength of landscape composition and spatial structure governs occurrence of invasive Eurasian collared-doves and expanding woodpigeons in a Mediterranean urban environment
Montag, 13. Juni 2022
Abstract Context Understanding the mechanisms governing the selection of habitats by urban expanding species to inform population control. Objectives We aimed to determine the effects of landscape composition, human disturbance, and spatial structuring on the occurrence of invasive Streptopelia decaocto (EUCD) and expanding Columba palumbus (EWP) in the city...
Agriculturally intensified landscapes are associated with reduced body condition of lady beetles
Freitag, 03. Juni 2022
Abstract Context Agricultural intensification is contributing to a global species decline. Underlying mechanisms include toxic effects of pesticides on non-target organisms and reductions in habitat and food availability. However, the effects of agricultural intensification on body condition, particularly of ecosystem service-providing arthropods, are poorly understood...
Developing landscape-scale forest restoration targets that embrace spatial pattern
Freitag, 03. Juni 2022
Abstract Context Forest restoration plays an important role in global efforts to slow biodiversity loss and mitigate climate change. Vegetation in remnant forests can form striking patterns that relate to ecological processes, but restoration targets tend to overlook spatial pattern. While observations of intact reference ecosystems can help to inform restoration targets, field surveys are ill-equipped to map and quantify spatial...
A scale dynamics approach to integrate landscape conservation within and across jurisdictional boundaries
Donnerstag, 02. Juni 2022
Abstract Context Public-private partnerships are needed to conserve landscapes, waterscapes, and seascapes. Landscape conservation design (LCD) translates shared objectives into spatial priorities to guide conservation efforts and foster collaboration among partners at the landscape level. Objective We examined LCD projects in the eastern United States to...
Change in beta diversity of riverine fish during and after supra-seasonal drought
Mittwoch, 01. Juni 2022
Abstract Context A core theme in ecohydrology is understanding how hydrology affects spatial variation in the composition of species assemblages (i.e., beta diversity). However, most empirical evidence is from research in upland rivers spanning small spatial extents. Relatively little is known of the consequences of hydrological variation for beta diversity across multiple spatial scales in lowland rivers...
Effects of temporal floral resource availability and non-crop habitats on broad bean pollination
Mittwoch, 01. Juni 2022
Abstract Context Flowering plants can enhance wild insect populations and their pollination services to crops in agricultural landscapes, especially when they flower before the focal crop. However, characterizing the temporal availability of specific floral resources is a challenge. Objectives Developing an index for the availability of floral...
The varying roles of ecosystem services in poverty alleviation among rural households in urbanizing watersheds
Mittwoch, 01. Juni 2022
Abstract Context Understanding the relationship between ecosystem services and human well-being in rural areas of rapidly urbanizing watersheds is one of the core research questions of landscape sustainability science. It is important for poverty alleviation and forming related policies. However, there is insufficient investigation on the impacts of ecosystem services on poverty alleviation on multiple scales in such region...
Buddhist monasteries facilitated landscape conservation on the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau
Mittwoch, 01. Juni 2022
Abstract Context The Sanjiangyuan region of the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau—also known as the “Three Rivers’ Headwaters”—is the origin of the Yellow, Yangtze, and Mekong Rivers and therefore the key water source for hundreds of millions of downstream residents. Protecting this region’s ecosystems is a key priority for sustainable development in China and Asia. An important social dimension of Sanjiangyuan is the...
A landscape connectivity approach to mitigating the urban heat island effect
Mittwoch, 01. Juni 2022
Abstract Context Urban integration has exacerbated the spreading of urban heat islands (UHIs) across cities. Blue/green landscapes embedded within urban areas, behaving as cool islands (CIs), have been highly focused due to their efficient cooling effects. Objectives Previous studies on the cooling effect of blue/green landscapes are mainly...
Long-unburnt habitat is critical for the conservation of threatened vertebrates across Australia
Mittwoch, 01. Juni 2022
Abstract Context Increases in fire frequency, intensity and extent are occurring globally. Relative to historical, Indigenous managed conditions, contemporary landscapes are often characterised by younger age classes of vegetation and a much smaller representation of long-unburnt habitat. Objectives We argue that, to conserve many threatened...
Cultural ecosystem services in an urban park: understanding bundles, trade-offs, and synergies
Mittwoch, 01. Juni 2022
Abstract Context Sets of ecosystem services that occur together across space or time are called ‘bundles’, and the interactions among them can result in synergies or trade-offs. Knowledge about the interactions among cultural ecosystem services (CES) in urban parks is limited, and how these interactions can be used to support landscape practices (i.e., design and management) and decision-making is unknown...
The dynamic matrix predicts population response to long-term experimental forest fragmentation
Mittwoch, 01. Juni 2022
Abstract Context Earth's forests are fragmented. Species' long-term persistence depends on their conservation in fragmented landscapes with remnants embedded in a matrix of human land use. This matrix influences species' persistence in fragments by determining their degree of isolation and the extent to which edge effects alter habitat. Matrix habitat is often dynamic, so its impact on persistence of remnant species changes...
