Biological Consequences of Ecosystem Fragmentation: A Review
Abstract. Abstract Research on fragmented ecosystems has focused mostly on the biogeograpbic consequences of the creation of habitat “islands” of different sizes and has provided little of practical
The availability and dimensions of tree hollows that provide nest sites for Cockatoos (Psittaciformes) in Western Australia.
A 15-ha plot of salmon gum woodland contained 241 hollows with an entrance diameter and depth exceeding 90 mm, in 173 trees, the majority in salmon gums, and there was a trend for hollow size to decrease in the order: red-tailed black cockatoos, corellas, galahs and Port Lincoln parrots.
A checklist for ecological management of landscapes for conservation.
Six major themes in the ecology and conservation of landscapes are assessed, including recognizing the importance of landscape mosaics, recognizing interactions between vegetation cover and vegetation configuration, and 13 important issues that need to be considered in developing approaches to landscape conservation.
Waterfowl Ecology And Management
The second edition is expanded to 2,800 references arrayed across 11 chapters, such as classification, courtship behavior and pair-bond formation, reproduction, feeding ecology, breeding and winter periods, mortality and harvest management, wetlands and wetland management, major waterfowl habitats, and policy and administration.
Habitat fragmentation and landscape change
This chapter begins by summarizing the conceptual approaches used to understand conservation in fragmented landscapes. We then examine the biophysical aspects of landscape change, and how such change
Is habitat fragmentation bad for biodiversity?
