About the Authors
  • One of the biggest threats to the survival of many plant and animal species is the destruction or fragmentation of their natural habitats. The conservation of landscape connections, where animals, plants, and ecological processes can move freely from one habitat to another, is therefore an essential part of any new conservation or environmental protection plan. In practice, however, maintaining, creating, and protecting connectivity in our increasingly dissected world is a daunting challenge. This fascinating volume provides a synthesis on the current status and literature of connectivity conservation research and implementation. It shows the challenges involved in applying existing knowledge to real-world examples and highlights areas in need of further study. Containing contributions from leading scientists and practitioners, this topical and thought-provoking volume will be essential reading for graduate students, researchers, and practitioners working in conservation biology and natural resource management.

    • Provides a vision for the future as to how to maintain connections for nature and highlights future challenges
    • The most comprehensive book on connectivity conservation, covering theoretical, empirical and applied efforts
    • Includes a variety of case studies in which landscape connections and corridors were explicitly considered as management options

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Recommended for conservation biologists, ecologists, and students of these fields."
    Wildlife Activist

    "The book is a milestone in conservation biology not only because of the importance of the subject matter but also because of the numerous excellent and authoritative summaries. As with other books in this series, it should be required reading in all advanced courses in conservation biology."
    William Newmark, Conservation Biology
