  • 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 spatial relationships among habitat patches and the matrix in which they are embedded. Many general models of subdividedpopulations make the assump- tions that (1) all habitatpatches are equivalent in size and quality and (2) all local populations (in the patches) are equally accessible by dispersers. Models… CONTINUE READING
