Conservation subdivision is a design concept used by landscape architects and other built environment professionals to conserve wildlife habitat within growing communities. The idea is by clustering homes together to maximize open space, one can conserve urban biodiversity. It is a popular concept used by many planners and landscape architects and is used in many municipalities as an alternative to conventional urban development. In this review paper, we systematically review Randall Arendt’s… 


Importance of Backyard Habitat in a Comprehensive Biodiversity Conservation Strategy: A Connectivity Analysis of Urban Green Spaces
Connectivity has been an accepted goal in ecological restoration of wilderness areas for some time, but it is a relatively new approach in urban areas. The connectivity analysis presented here
Conservation Value of Clustered Housing Developments
Both types of housing development had significantly higher densities of non-native and human-commensal species and significantly lower densities than undeveloped areas and more rigorous ecological guidelines and planning on a regional scale may help create clustered developments with higher conservation value.
Corridors in Real Landscapes: A Reply to Simberloff and Cox
Abstract: Habitat corridors have become popular in land-use plans and conservation strategies, yet few data are available to either support or refute their value. Simberloff and Cox (1987) have
An integrated approach for measuring urban forest restoration success
Exploring the ecology of suburban wildlife
The fringes of cities, and rural properties within commuting distance of cities, experience some of the highest rates of development in the world. This can cause dramatic changes to the landscape,
Are Wildlife Corridors the Right Path?
The popular strategy of connecting patches of otherwise isolated habitat is at the center of a major conservation debate. Many ecologists and conservation activists argue that such corridors are
Biodiversity across a Rural Land‐Use Gradient
Abstract: Private lands in the American West are undergoing a land‐use conversion from agriculture to exurban development, although little is known about the ecological consequences of this change.
