In fragmented landscapes, connectivity between subpopulations is vital for species’ persistence. Various techniques are used to assess the degree of connectivity between habitat patches, yet their performance is seldom evaluated. Models are regularly based on habitat selection by individuals in resident populations, yet dispersers may not require habitat which supports permanent residence. Using a database of African wild dog (Lycaon pictus) occurrence records in north-eastern South Africa (n… CONTINUE READING
