On the Importance of Landscape History for Assessing Extinction Risk

  title={On the Importance of Landscape History for Assessing Extinction Risk},
  author={Gregory R. Schrott and Kimberly A. With and Anthony W. King}
Assessment of extinction risk may depend not only upon the current state of the landscape and its projected trajectory of change, but also on its past disturbance history. We employed a spatially structured demographic model to evaluate extinction risk for several generic migratory songbirds within landscapes subjected to ongoing habitat loss and fragmentation. We generated different scenarios of dynamic landscape change using neutral landscape models, in which breeding habitat was… CONTINUE READING
