Extra resources for Connectivity Conservation (Conservation Biology)
The original concept of landscape connectivity thus emphasizes the functional connectivity of landscapes. This distinction between structural and functional connectivity is not a trivial one. First and foremost, habitat does not necessarily need to be structurally connected to be functionally connected. Some organisms, by virtue of their gap-crossing abilities, are capable of linking resources across an uninhabitable or partially inhabitable matrix (Dale et al. 1994; Desrochers et al. 1998; Pither and Taylor 1998; Hinsley 2000; Be´lisle and Desrochers 2002).
W I T H INTRODUCTION In the decade or so since the concept was formalized in landscape ecology (Taylor et al. 1993) the meaning of the term ‘‘landscape connectivity’’ has become rather diffuse and ambiguous. Many researchers continue to ignore key elements of the original concept, which greatly diminishes its potential utility for land management and the conservation of biodiversity. As originally defined, landscape connectivity is ‘‘the degree to which the landscape facilitates or impedes movement among resource patches’’ (Taylor et al.
3) À when scientists developing models and metrics make their work accessible to field researchers, when empirical biologists use theory as a foundation to formulate their research questions, and when conservation practitioners work closely with scientists to ensure that the best science guides applied conservation action. We believe that enlarging this area of overlap and synergy between domains is a key to connectivity conservation (Fig. 4); the concluding chapter to this volume (Bennett et al.
