Preserving Biological Diversity with Wildlife Corridors: Amending the Guidelines to the California Environmental Quality Act
- A Viable Population of the European Red Squirrel in an Urban Park. Rézouki, Célia; Dozières, Anne; Le Cœur, Christie; Thibault, Sophie; Pisanu, Benoît; Chapuis, Jean-Louis; Baudry, Emmanuelle // PLoS ONE;Aug2014, Vol. 9 Issue 8, p1
Whether urban parks can maintain viable and self-sustaining populations over the long term is questionable. In highly urbanized landscapes, urban parks could play a role in biodiversity conservation by providing habitat and resources to native species. However, populations inhabiting urban parks...
- Do corridors promote connectivity for bird-dispersed trees? The case of Persea lingue in Chilean fragmented landscapes. Pérez-Hernández, Christian; Vergara, Pablo; Saura, Santiago; Hernández, Jaime // Landscape Ecology;Jan2015, Vol. 30 Issue 1, p77
Disentangling the contribution of corridors to landscape connectivity is crucial for adopting efficient measures in conservation, but their actual role in heterogeneous landscapes is not yet fully understood. We assessed the hypothesis that corridors, consisting of hedgerows and riparian...
- New Mouse Species. // Science & Children;Mar2005, Vol. 42 Issue 6, p8
The article reports on a new genus of mouse discovered by a team of American and Filipino biologists in the Philippines. The animal is characterized by bright orange color, large head, heavily muscled jaws, and powerful teeth. The tiny mouse was discovered by the team of researchers several...

Provides information on the Northeastern Ecological Corridor (NEC) in Puerto Rico. Description of NEC; Information on tropical wildlife found in NEC; Developmental and construction threat on NEC.
- NEWS IQ. // Scholastic News -- Edition 4;1/4/2010, Vol. 72 Issue 11, p8
No abstract available.
- Conservation assumptions challenged. // BioScience;Jan1994, Vol. 44 Issue 1, p55
Focuses on the arguments on the accuracy of assumptions used by conservationists as basis in deciding which lands and waters should be preserved. Assumption that an area that is species rich for one group of plants or animals also is diverse for other groups; Belief that rare species will...
- Biological corridors: Form, function, and efficacy. Rosenberg, Daniel K.; Noon, Barry R. // BioScience;Nov97, Vol. 47 Issue 10, p677
Discusses the inclusion of biological corridors in reserve designs as an important conservation tactic for protecting biological diversity. Impact of habitat loss and fragmentation; Isolation and population extinction; Achieving connectivity; Nature of biological corridors; Defining linear...
- Large-Scale Habitat Corridors for Biodiversity Conservation: A Forest Corridor in Madagascar. Ramiadantsoa, Tanjona; Ovaskainen, Otso; Rybicki, Joel; Hanski, Ilkka // PLoS ONE;7/22/2015, Vol. 10 Issue 7, p1
In biodiversity conservation, habitat corridors are assumed to increase landscape-level connectivity and to enhance the viability of otherwise isolated populations. While the role of corridors is supported by empirical evidence, studies have typically been conducted at small spatial scales....
- SUSTAINABLE BREW. Dwyer, Augusta // Canadian Geographic;Nov/Dec2004, Vol. 124 Issue 6, p46
Focuses on the efforts of professor Howard Daugherty to preserve and expand biodiversity in the Las Nubes rain forest in agricultural areas in Costa Rica. Importance of the plan to create a biological corridor; Beneficial side effects of the plan.
