Effects of geography and life history traits on genetic differentiation in benthic marine fishes
It is found that transitions between biogeographic regions and egg type are significant and consistent contributors to population genetic structure, whereas PLD does not significantly explain population structure and there are inherent differences in dispersal ability associated with egg type.

Measurements to increase people's connection to nature could be more important than measures to increase urban green space availability if the authors want to encourage park visitation.
Health Benefits from Nature Experiences Depend on Dose
It is shown that people who made long visits to green spaces had lower rates of depression and high blood pressure, and those who visited more frequently had greater social cohesion and higher levels of physical activity were linked to both duration and frequency of green space visits.

Alarming losses comprising one-tenth (3.3 million km2) of global wilderness areas over the last two decades are demonstrated, particularly in the Amazon and central Africa, and an immediate need for international policies to recognize the vital values of wilderness and the unprecedented threats they face is underscore.
Cities are hotspots for threatened species
Aim Although urbanization impacts many species, there is little information on the patterns of occurrences of threatened species in urban relative to non-urban areas. By assessing the extent of the…

g r a p h i c a l a b s t r a c t a b s t r a c t Opportunities to experience nature are important for human wellbeing, yet they are often inequitably distributed across society. Socio-economic…
The Health Benefits of Urban Nature: How Much Do We Need?
Over 30 years of research has shown that urban nature is a promising tool for enhancing the physical, psychological, and social well-being of the world's growing urban population. However, little is…

It is clear that large male estuarine crocodiles can exhibit strong site fidelity, have remarkable navigational skills, and may move long distances following a coastline, including impressive daily movements of 10–30 km, often consecutively.
The influence of patch area and connectivity on avian communities in urban revegetation
Landscape restoration through revegetation is being increasingly used in the conservation management of degraded landscapes. To effectively plan restoration programs information is required on how…
