Hi all,

For your information just out a newly published paper in Ecography on
integration of multi-species connectivity and habitat quality in
conservation planning

​ By combining remote sensing, connectivity modeling and decision support
tool (Marxan), we explicitly derived conservation objectives regarding
connectivity and addressed important issues related to this incorporation,
​which include:
1) the need to consider connectivity for multiple species with different
dispersal abilities, and
2) the role played by variable habitat quality in determining the spatial
patterns of connectivity. ​

The direct link to the manuscript is:

I will also provide the accepted version through my profile on Research Gate

Apologies for cross-posting and I hope you enjoy reading it.

Regards, Rafael Magris
