Unravelling the response of diurnal raptors to land use change in a highly dynamic landscape in northwestern Spain: an approach based on satellite earth observation data

  
European Journal of Wildlife Research, Vol. 63, No. 2. (2017), pp. 1-15, https://doi.org/10.1007/s10344-017-1097-2

Abstract

Land use and land cover change (LULCC) is one of the main components of current anthropogenic global change. Unravelling the ecological response of biodiversity to the combined effect of land use change and other stressors is essential for effective conservation. For this purpose, we used co-inertia analysis to combine LULCC analysis of earth observation satellite data-derived maps and raptor data obtained from road censuses conducted in 2001 and 2014 at sampling unit level (10 km2 spatial resolution), in northwestern Spain (province ...

 

An ecoregion-based approach to protecting half the terrestrial realm

  
BioScience (14 April 2017), https://doi.org/10.1093/biosci/bix014

Abstract

We assess progress toward the protection of 50% of the terrestrial biosphere to address the species-extinction crisis and conserve a global ecological heritage for future generations. Using a map of Earth's 846 terrestrial ecoregions, we show that 98 ecoregions (12%) exceed Half Protected; 313 ecoregions (37%) fall short of Half Protected but have sufficient unaltered habitat remaining to reach the target; and 207 ecoregions (24%) are in peril, where an average of only 4% of natural habitat remains. We propose a ...

 

Mediterranean habitat loss under future climate conditions: assessing impacts on the Natura 2000 protected area network

  
Applied Geography, Vol. 75 (2016), pp. 83-92, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.apgeog.2016.08.003

Abstract

[Highlights] [::] The Mediterranean climate domain is projected to loss 11–25% of its current extent. [::] Projected losses of the Mediterranean climate are due to shifts of the arid domain. [::] The Mediterranean domain is projected to shift by 53–121% of its current size. [::] These changes are projected to affect 15–23% of the Mediterranean Natura 2000 sites. [Abstract] The Mediterranean basin is a global hotspot of biological diversity and the most rich biodiversity region in Europe. Nevertheless, climate-driven habitat loss is one of the most serious ...

 

Climate change, habitat loss, protected areas and the climate adaptation potential of species in Mediterranean ecosystems worldwide

  
PLOS ONE, Vol. 4, No. 7. (29 July 2009), e6392, https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0006392

Abstract

Mediterranean climate is found on five continents and supports five global biodiversity hotspots. Based on combined downscaled results from 23 atmosphere-ocean general circulation models (AOGCMs) for three emissions scenarios, we determined the projected spatial shifts in the mediterranean climate extent (MCE) over the next century. Although most AOGCMs project a moderate expansion in the global MCE, regional impacts are large and uneven. The median AOGCM simulation output for the three emissions scenarios project the MCE at the end of the 21st ...

 

Landscape genomics and a common garden trial reveal adaptive differentiation to temperature across Europe in the tree species Alnus glutinosa

  
Molecular Ecology, Vol. 23, No. 19. (1 October 2014), pp. 4709-4721, https://doi.org/10.1111/mec.12813

Abstract

The adaptive potential of tree species to cope with climate change has important ecological and economic implications. Many temperate tree species experience a wide range of environmental conditions, suggesting high adaptability to new environmental conditions. We investigated adaptation to regional climate in the drought-sensitive tree species Alnus glutinosa (Black alder), using a complementary approach that integrates genomic, phenotypic and landscape data. A total of 24 European populations were studied in a common garden and through landscape genomic approaches. Genotyping-by-sequencing was used ...

 

Temperate and boreal rainforest relicts of Europe

Abstract

European temperate rainforests are disjunctly distributed from ~45° to 69°N latitude, where they are influenced by maritime climates (see figure 6-1). Storms originating in the North Atlantic and the Mediterranean (Balkans) provide for mild winters, cool summers, and adequate precipitation to sustain rainforests throughout the year. Due to extensive deforestation, however, today’s European rainforests are mere fragments of primeval rainforests. A reminder of a bygone era when rainforests flourished, they are barely hanging on as contemporary rainforest relicts (see box 6-1). ...

 

Synergies and trade-offs between ecosystem service supply, biodiversity, and habitat conservation status in Europe

  
Biological Conservation, Vol. 155 (October 2012), pp. 1-12, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.biocon.2012.06.016

Abstract

[Abstract] In the European Union (EU) efforts to conserve biodiversity have been consistently directed towards the protection of habitats and species through the designation of protected areas under the Habitats Directive (92/43/ECC). These biodiversity conservation efforts also have the potential to maintain or improve the supply of ecosystem services; however, this potential has been poorly explored across Europe. This paper reports on a spatial assessment of the relationships between biodiversity, ecosystem services, and conservation status of protected habitats at European scale. We ...

 

Human activity differentially redistributes large mammals in the Canadian Rockies national parks

  
Ecology and Society, Vol. 16, No. 3. (2011), https://doi.org/10.5751/es-04251-160316

Abstract

National parks are important for conservation of species such as wolves (Canis lupus) and elk (Cervus canadensis). However, topography, vegetation conditions, and anthropogenic infrastructure within parks may limit available habitat. Human activity on trails and roads may lead to indirect habitat loss, further limiting available habitat. Predators and prey may respond differentially to human activity, potentially disrupting ecological processes. However, research on such impacts to wildlife is incomplete, especially at fine spatial and temporal scales. Our research investigated the relationship between ...

 

Effects of habitat fragmentation on biodiversity

  
Annual Review of Ecology, Evolution, and Systematics, Vol. 34, No. 1. (2003), pp. 487-515, https://doi.org/10.1146/annurev.ecolsys.34.011802.132419

Abstract

The literature on effects of habitat fragmentation on biodiversity is huge. It is also very diverse, with different authors measuring fragmentation in different ways and, as a consequence, drawing different conclusions regarding both the magnitude and direction of its effects. Habitat fragmentation is usually defined as a landscape-scale process involving both habitat loss and the breaking apart of habitat. Results of empirical studies of habitat fragmentation are often difficult to interpret because (a) many researchers measure fragmentation at the patch scale, ...

 

Habitat destruction: death by a thousand cuts

  
In Conservation Biology for All (01 January 2010), pp. 73-87, https://doi.org/10.1093/acprof:oso/9780199554232.003.0005

Abstract

[Excerpt] Humankind has dramatically transformed much of the Earth’s surface and its natural ecosystems. This process is not new—it has been ongoing for millennia—but it has accelerated sharply over the last two centuries, and especially in the last several decades. [\n] Today, the loss and degradation of natural habitats can be likened to a war of attrition. Many natural ecosystems are being progressively razed, bulldozed, and felled by axes or chainsaws, until only small scraps of their original extent survive. Forests have been hit especially hard: the global area of forests has been reduced ...

 

Remaining natural vegetation in the global biodiversity hotspots

  
Biological Conservation, Vol. 177 (September 2014), pp. 12-24, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.biocon.2014.05.027

Abstract

[Highlights] [::] We estimate the area of natural intact vegetation in the global biodiversity hotspots. [::] Natural intact vegetation spans 3,545,975 km2, or 14.9% of its original extent. [::] Hotspots previously considered most intact suffered greatest downward adjustments. [::] Natural intact vegetation area is critical (<10%) in 6 of 12 biomes in the hotspots. [::] Natural intact vegetation is marketed more fragmented when <10% of hotspot area. [Abstract] The biodiversity hotspots are 35 biogeographical regions that have both exceptional endemism and extreme threats to their vegetation integrity, and ...

 

Biodiversity hotspots and major tropical wilderness areas: approaches to setting conservation priorities

  
Conservation Biology, Vol. 12, No. 3. (17 June 1998), pp. 516-520, https://doi.org/10.1046/j.1523-1739.1998.012003516.x

Abstract

[Excerpt] [\n] [...] [\n] The present reassessment of the biodiversity hotspots approach began in 1996 and is still underway. Therefore, what we present here are some initial conclusions; a more detailed presentation will be available in the near future. Our analysis is based first and foremost on species numbers, using plants as the principal indicator of biological diversity (“plants” here means the members of the Plant Kingdom, represented worldwide by some 270,000 species [Raven & Johnson 1991]). Hotspots were identified by two main criteria: first plant endemism and then degree of threat. [\n] [...] [\n] Looking in more detail at the hotspots list, ...

 

The Global 200: a representation approach to conserving the Earth's most biologically valuable ecoregions

  
Conservation Biology, Vol. 12, No. 3. (17 June 1998), pp. 502-515, https://doi.org/10.1046/j.1523-1739.1998.012003502.x

Abstract

[Excerpt] [\n] [...] The Global 200 is an effective tool for [::(1)] targeting distinctive biogeographic units of biodiversity and [::(2)] promoting ecosystem-level representation at global scales. [\n] The Global 200 broadens the goals of conservation from a primary focus on preserving species diversity to an encompassing view of habitat diversity, ecological processes, evolutionary phenomena, and adaptations of species to different environmental conditions around the world. In some cases, it also distinguishes representative ecoregions that are more intact than others, highlighting the best opportunities for long-term conservation. [\n] Like any effort to set priorities, the Global 200 cannot address all aspects of biodiversity ...

 

Primary forests are irreplaceable for sustaining tropical biodiversity

  
Nature, Vol. 478, No. 7369. (14 September 2011), pp. 378-381, https://doi.org/10.1038/nature10425

Abstract

Human-driven land-use changes increasingly threaten biodiversity, particularly in tropical forests where both species diversity and human pressures on natural environments are high. The rapid conversion of tropical forests for agriculture, timber production and other uses has generated vast, human-dominated landscapes with potentially dire consequences for tropical biodiversity. Today, few truly undisturbed tropical forests exist, whereas those degraded by repeated logging and fires, as well as secondary and plantation forests, are rapidly expanding. Here we provide a global assessment of the impact ...

European map of alien plant invasions based on the quantitative assessment across habitats

  
Diversity and Distributions, Vol. 15, No. 1. (January 2009), pp. 98-107, https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1472-4642.2008.00515.x

Abstract

[Aim] Recent studies using vegetation plots have demonstrated that habitat type is a good predictor of the level of plant invasion, expressed as the proportion of alien to all species. At local scale, habitat types explain the level of invasion much better than alien propagule pressure. Moreover, it has been shown that patterns of habitat invasion are consistent among European regions with contrasting climates, biogeography, history and socioeconomic background. Here we use these findings as a basis for mapping the ...

Larix decidua Mill. in Romania: current and past distribution, coenotic preferences, and conservation status

  
Contribuții Botanice, Vol. 48 (2013), pp. 39-50

Abstract

This paper aims to present an overview of the Larix decidua Mill. formations in Romania, in terms of phytosociology, sozology and phytohistory. We have analyzed data from the literature regarding the associations containing larch, and their current fragmented distribution in the Romanian Carpathians. The latter is influenced by the ecological requirements of the species, as well as by human influence through deforestation and reforestation. It is assumed that natural populations of Larix decidua are concentrated in five major centres: the Ceahlau, ...

 

Management of Natura 2000 habitats: 5210 Arborescent matorral with Juniperus spp

  

Abstract

The arborescent matorral with Juniperusspp. habitat is a scrub vegetation that isfoundin the countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea. Juniperusspp. are evergreen shrubsor small trees with few vital needs that, thanks to their morpho-physiologicalcharacteristics, coloniseharsh environments suchas rocky coasts and dry, incoherent soils. Juniper, with its deep and well-developed root system, is therefore an important species for soil retention and consolidation,preventing soil erosion caused by rain and wind. It is important as an ecotone,since it is often a transition area ...

A new habitat availability index to integrate connectivity in landscape conservation planning: Comparison with existing indices and application to a case study

  
Landscape and Urban Planning, Vol. 83, No. 2-3. (19 November 2007), pp. 91-103, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.landurbplan.2007.03.005

Abstract

Connectivity is a major concern for the maintenance of wildlife populations, ecological flows, and many other landscape functions. For these reasons many different connectivity indices have been used or proposed for landscape conservation planning; however, their properties and behaviour have not been sufficiently examined and may provide misleading or undesired results for these purposes. We here present a new index (probability of connectivity, PC) that is based on the habitat availability concept, dispersal probabilities between habitat patches and graph structures. We ...

Abstract

Maintaining and restoring landscape connectivity is currently a central concern in ecology and biodiversity conservation, and there is an increasing demand of user-driven tools for integrating connectivity in landscape planning. Here we describe the new Conefor Sensinode 2.2 (CS22) software, which quantifies the importance of habitat patches for maintaining or improving functional landscape connectivity and is conceived as a tool for decision-making support in landscape planning and habitat conservation. CS22 is based on graph structures, which have been suggested to possess ...

 

Comparison and development of new graph-based landscape connectivity indices: towards the priorization of habitat patches and corridors for conservation

  
Landscape Ecology In Landscape Ecology, Vol. 21, No. 7. (1 October 2006), pp. 959-967, https://doi.org/10.1007/s10980-006-0013-z

Abstract

The loss of connectivity of natural areas is a major threat for wildlife dispersal and survival and for the conservation of biodiversity in general. Thus, there is an increasing interest in considering connectivity in landscape planning and habitat conservation. In this context, graph structures have been shown to be a powerful and effective way of both representing the landscape pattern as a network and performing complex analysis regarding landscape connectivity. Many indices have been used for connectivity analyses so far but ...

When we think of nature in 2014, chances are that protected areas come to mind: Amazonian rainforests teeming with wildlife, the sweeping plains of the Serengeti, or an Alpine lake surrounded by glaciers. But the world's protected areas are at a crossroads, and next month, when the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) convenes its once-in-a-decade World Parks Congress in Sydney, Australia, nations will discuss how to address the challenges in protecting ecosystems across the world for the benefit of ...

 

Climate change might drive the invasive tree Robinia pseudacacia into nature reserves and endangered habitats

  
Biological Conservation, Vol. 143, No. 2. (01 February 2010), pp. 382-390, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.biocon.2009.10.024

Abstract

Static networks of nature reserves disregard the dynamics of species ranges in changing environments. In fact, climate warming has been shown to potentially drive endangered species out of reserves. Less attention has been paid to the related problem that a warmer climate may also foster the invasion of alien species into reserve networks. Here, we use niche-based predictive modelling to assess to which extent the Austrian Natura 2000 network and a number of habitat types of conservation value outside this network ...

Predicting species distribution: offering more than simple habitat models

  
Ecology Letters, Vol. 8, No. 9. (1 September 2005), pp. 993-1009, https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1461-0248.2005.00792.x

Abstract

In the last two decades, interest in species distribution models (SDMs) of plants and animals has grown dramatically. Recent advances in SDMs allow us to potentially forecast anthropogenic effects on patterns of biodiversity at different spatial scales. However, some limitations still preclude the use of SDMs in many theoretical and practical applications. Here, we provide an overview of recent advances in this field, discuss the ecological principles and assumptions underpinning SDMs, and highlight critical limitations and decisions inherent in the construction ...

 

Habitat fragmentation and altered fire regime create trade-offs for an obligate seeding shrub

  
Ecology, Vol. 91, No. 4. (April 2010), pp. 1114-1123, https://doi.org/10.1890/09-0287.1

Abstract

Habitat loss is widely considered the greatest threat to biodiversity. However, habitat loss brings with it myriad other threats that exacerbate impacts to biodiversity. For instance, altered fire regime is associated with habitat loss and fragmentation with unknown consequences to biodiversity. Plant functional groups that rely on fire to complete their life cycle may be adversely affected by disruptions to the natural fire regime, particularly when coupled with population declines due to habitat loss. We used a spatially explicit stochastic population ...

 

Indicators for biodiversity in agricultural landscapes: a pan-European study

  
Journal of Applied Ecology, Vol. 45, No. 1. (23 July 2007), pp. 141-150, https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1365-2664.2007.01393.x

Abstract

In many European agricultural landscapes, species richness is declining considerably. Studies performed at a very large spatial scale are helpful in understanding the reasons for this decline and as a basis for guiding policy. In a unique, large-scale study of 25 agricultural landscapes in seven European countries, we investigated relationships between species richness in several taxa, and the links between biodiversity and landscape structure and management. We estimated the total species richness of vascular plants, birds and five arthropod groups in ...

 

The need for management of nature conservation sites designated under Natura 2000

  
Journal of Applied Ecology, Vol. 35, No. 6. (1 December 1998), pp. 968-973, https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1365-2664.1998.tb00016.x

Abstract

The Natura 2000 Network will consist of sites designated by the Member States of the European Union, under the Habitats and Birds Directives. Many of these sites need an appropriate management to maintain a favourable conservation status; this will often be based on low-intensity agricultural practices. Out of the 198 listed habitat types of the Habitats Directive, 28 (14%) could be threatened by the abandonment of low-intensity agricultural practices. The paper gives a comparative outlook over some situations in Europe, after ...
