Simple Connectivity Measures in Spatial Ecology

  title={Simple Connectivity Measures in Spatial Ecology},

Connectivity is a fundamental concept that is widely utilized in spatial ecology. The majority of connectivity measures used in the recent ecological literature only consider the nearest neighbor patch/population, or patches within a limited neighborhood of the focal patch (a buffer).
