LandScape Corridors (lscorridors): a new software package for modelling ecological corridors based on landscape patterns and species requirements
Maintaining connectivity is one of the main challenges for biodiversity conservation world-wide. Ecological corridors are important to maintain landscape connectivity, but their efficiency depends on landscape patterns and ...
Agroforestry landscapes and global change: Landscape ecology tools for management and conservation
Forest ecosystems are impacted by multiple uses under the influence of global drivers, and where landscape ecology tools may substantially facilitate the management and conservation of the agroforestry ecosystems. The use ...
Landscape ecology and biodiversity in agricultural landscapes
Agriculture is mainly seen as a threat for biodiversity of agro-ecosystems. Intensification of agriculture and its expansion into marginal lands has substantially modified the physiognomy of rural landscapes through ...
