Linkages in the Landscape: The Role of Corridors and Connectivity in Wildlife Conservation

Front Cover
IUCN, 1999 - Nature - 254 pages
0 Reviews
The loss and fragmentation of natural habitats is one of the major issues in wildlife management and conservation. Habitat "corridors" are sometimes proposed as an important element within a conservation strategy. This book offers examples of corridors both as pathways and as habitats in their own right. It includes detailed reviews of principles relevant to the design and management of corridors, their place in regional approaches to conservation planning, and recommendations for research and management.
