Corridor Ecology: The Science and Practice of Linking Landscapes for Biodiversity Conservation
Island Press, Feb 13, 2012 - Nature - 344 pages
Corridor Ecology presents guidelines that combine conservation science and practical experience for maintaining, enhancing, and creating connectivity between natural areas with an overarching goal of conserving biodiversity. It offers an objective, carefully interpreted review of the issues and is a one-of-a-kind resource for scientists, landscape architects, planners, land managers, decision-makers, and all those working to protect and restore landscapes and species diversity.
