Estimating landscape resistance to movement: a review
TLDR
Resistance surfaces are often used to fill gaps in our knowledge surrounding animal movement and are the basis for modeling connectivity associated with conservation initiatives. Expand

Relationships Between Landscape Structure and Breeding Birds in the Oregon Coast Range
Human-caused fragmentation of forests is increasing, yet the consequences of these landscape changes to vertebrate communities are poorly understood. Although bird community response to forestExpand

COMPARATIVE EVALUATION OF EXPERIMENTAL APPROACHES TO THE STUDY OF HABITAT FRAGMENTATION EFFECTS
TLDR
We evaluate the merits of the two major experimental approaches (mensurative and manipulative) used to study the effects of habitat fragmentation. Expand

Parsimony in landscape metrics: Strength, universality, and consistency
TLDR
We used FRAGSTATS and principal components analysis (PCA) to identify independent components of landscape structure in multiple landscapes in each of three large and geographically disjunct study areas. Expand

A resistant-kernel model of connectivity for amphibians that breed in vernal pools.
Pool-breeding amphibian populations operate at multiple scales, from the individual pool to surrounding upland habitat to clusters of pools. When metapopulation dynamics play a role in long-termExpand
