SIMPLE CONNECTIVITY MEASURES IN SPATIAL ECOLOGY
TLDR
A meta-analysis suggests that studies using nearest neighbor connectivity measures are much less likely to find statistically significant effects of connectivity than studies that use more complex measures. Expand

Prioritizing multiple-use landscapes for conservation: methods for large multi-species planning problems
Across large parts of the world, wildlife has to coexist with human activity in highly modified and fragmented landscapes. Combining concepts from population viability analysis and spatial reserveExpand

Spatial conservation prioritization: Quantitative methods and computational tools
Habitat loss and deterioration, climate change, and economic pressures for resource extraction have all led to a global loss of biodiversity. The limited resources available for conservation need toExpand

ESTIMATING THE PARAMETERS OF SURVIVAL AND MIGRATION OF INDIVIDUALS IN METAPOPULATIONS
Ecologists working with metapopulations are interested in the rate of migration among several local populations, mortality during migration, and the scaling of migration rate with habitat patch areaExpand

Landscape Zonation, benefit functions and target-based planning: Unifying reserve selection strategies
TLDR
The Zonation algorithm is a recent computational method that produces a hierarchy of conservation priority through the landscape. Expand

METAPOPULATION DYNAMICS: EFFECTS OF HABITAT QUALITY AND LANDSCAPE STRUCTURE
TLDR
We demonstrate how the effects of habitat quality (extra environmental factors) and detailed landscape structure (described with GIS [Geographical Information System]) can be included in a spatially realistic metapopulation model, the incidence function model. Expand

Faustian bargains? Restoration realities in the context of biodiversity offset policies
The science and practice of ecological restoration are increasingly being called upon to compensate for the loss of biodiversity values caused by development projects. BiodiversityExpand

MATESOFT: a program for deducing parental genotypes and estimating mating system statistics in haplodiploid species
With the advent of sophisticated genetic markers, studies on mating systems and reproductive apportionment have become increasingly feasible. In particular, paternity analyses in haplodiploid speciesExpand

PATCH OCCUPANCY MODELS OF METAPOPULATION DYNAMICS: EFFICIENT PARAMETER ESTIMATION USING IMPLICIT STATISTICAL INFERENCE
TLDR
The practical value of a predictive metapopulation model is much affected by the amount of data required for parameter estimation. Expand

Climate change, connectivity and conservation decision making: back to basics
Summary 1. The challenge of climate change forces us to re-examine the assumptions underlying conservation planning. 2. Increasing ‘connectivity’ has emerged as the most favoured option forExpand
