Connectivity is a vital element of landscape structure
In a recent FORUM article, Dunning et al. (1992) put forward a framework of landscape processes that stimulated considerable discussion amongst us. We are in general agreement with their ideas, butExpand

INDEPENDENT EFFECTS OF FOREST COVER AND FRAGMENTATION ON THE DISTRIBUTION OF FOREST BREEDING BIRDS
The aims of this study were (1) to determine the relative importance of the independent effects of forest cover and fragmentation on the distribution of forest breeding birds, and (2) to test theExpand

Fragmentation effects on forest birds : Relative influence of woodland cover and configuration on landscape occupancy
: Habitat fragmentation has been shown to influence the abundance, movements, and persistence of many species. We asked the following questions: (1) Do species respond mainly to habitat loss or toExpand

Conservation of fragmented populations
In this paper we argue that landscape spatial structure is of central importance in understanding the ef- fects of fragmentation on population survival. Landscape spatial structure is the spatialExpand

Habitat Patch Connectivity and Population Survival
We constructed a patch dynamics model which can be used to simulate the changing sizes of resident populations in a series of interconnected habitat patches. We applied the model to white—footed miceExpand

Patchy environments and species survival: Chipmunks in an agricultural mosaic
Abstract Chipmunks were studied in woods separated by farmland and connected by fencerows. Local extinctions of chipmunks from individual woods were readily recolonised by animals from other patches.Expand

Landscape structure influences continental distribution of hantavirus in deer mice
We hypothesized that landscape structure affects movement of individuals through the landscape, which affects the rate and pattern of disease transmission. Based on this hypothesis, we predicted aExpand

Wing Morphology of a Forest Damselfly Is Related to Landscape Structure
We demonstrate that, after correcting for the effects of size, the wing lengths, wing widths and thoracic weights of the forest damselfly Calopteryx maculata differ between populations along forestedExpand

Movements by Birds and Small Mammals Between a Wood and Adjoining Farmland Habitats
(1) White-footed mice (Peromyscus leucopus) and chipmunks (Tamias striatus) moved between a beech-maple wood and connecting fencerows four times as often as they moved between traplines within theExpand

Dynamics in subdivided populations of neotropical migratory birds in a fragmented temperate forest
To study the hierarchy of variables involved in the year-to-year dynamics in the distribution of Neotropical migratory birds, we compared observed numbers of local extinctions and recolonizations toExpand
