Fragmentation of extensive natural ecosystems by roads, railways and other barriers poses major threats to populations of native animals. Attempts have been made to reduce the magnitude of these th... 
Fragmentation of Habitat by Roads and Utility Corridors: A Review
This review examines the ecological effects of roads and utility corridors such as powerlines, pipelines, canals and railway lines on undisturbed habitat and native wildlife. Public concern about r...
Methods to Monitor and Mitigate Wildlife Mortality in Railways
Recording wildlife mortality on railways is challenging as they have narrow corridors and lower accessibility. To improve mitigation measures, surveys must be systematic and their frequency depending

Overview of Transportation Related Wildlife Problems
Highways and railways are sources of road mortality that threaten wildlife populations. They also have the potential to undermine ecological processes through the fragmentation of wildlife
Linkages in the Landscape: The Role of Corridors and Connectivity in Wildlife Conservation
The loss and fragmentation of natural habitats is one of the major issues in wildlife management and conservation. Habitat "corridors" are sometimes proposed as an important element within a
Does structural connectivity facilitate dispersal of native species in Australia’s fragmented terrestrial landscapes?
Does structural connectivity facilitate dispersal of native species in Australia's fragmented terrestrial landscapes? CEE protocol 08-007 (SR44).
Railway ecology vs. road ecology: similarities and differences
Railway ecology is an emerging discipline. In this review, we focus on what is known today regarding the impacts of railways on wildlife, and on the methods to identify, monitor, and mitigate these
The effects of landscape attributes on the use of small wildlife underpasses by weasel (Mustela nivalis) and stoat (Mustela erminea)
Bij 14 kleine faunatunnels onder de spoorlijn Boxtel-Eindhoven werd het effect van landschapsvariabelen op het gebruik van deze tunnels door kleine marterachtigen onderzocht
Use of Non-Wildlife Passages Across a High Speed Railway by Terrestrial Vertebrates
Minor modifications to non-wildlife passages and to the management of surrounding areas may further improve the efficacy of these passages for allowing wildlife to cross linear barriers and, therefore, potentially reduce the effects of habitat fragmentation.


Road-Kills of Macropds on a Section of Highway in Central Victoria
The majority of kills were of adult males, indicating that motor vehicles act as a selective mortality factor, and most road-kills also occurred around the time of full moon, suggesting that kangaroos are more mobile during that phase.
The Effects of Roads on Populations of Small Mammals
The effects of roadways on the movements of small and mediumsized mammals (small mammals less -than 700 g; medium-sized mammals 700 to approx. 14 000 g) are obtained from capture-recapture studies and from direct observation of roadway.
