For land-use planning, numerically fast and easily applicable tools are urgently needed that allow us to assess how landscape structure and dynamics affect biodiversity. To date, such tools exist only for static landscapes. We provide an analytical formula for the mean lifetime of species in fragmented and dynamic habitat networks where habitat patches may be destroyed and created elsewhere. The formula is able to consider both patch size heterogeneity and dynamics additionally to patch number… CONTINUE READING
