Plant and Animal Endemism in California

California is globally popular for its organic variety, together with its wealth of designated, or endemic, species. Many purposes were brought up to provide an explanation for this abundance: the advanced geology and topography of its panorama, the certain powers of its Mediterranean-type weather, and the old and glossy limitations to the broader dispersal of its wildlife.

Example text

Measures of landscape connectivity could be derived from inter-patch distances in situations where the matrix is invariant and ecologically neutral over the area of study, and where there are no effects of landscape structure on movement decisions at the scale of study, but such situations are likely quite rare. Some recent work is paving the way to linking these two general frameworks. In particular, incidence function models were originally solely distance-based and so only measured structural connectivity.

Perhaps the most pertinent question facing conservation biologists, land-use planners, and resource managers today is not why do we need natural levels of connectivity, but rather how should it be achieved, for what target species or ecological process, and at what scale? VOLUME OVERVIEW Although habitat loss and fragmentation have been identified as major threats to life on the planet, and although maintaining connections in otherwise fragmented landscapes has become a primary focus of our conservation efforts, relatively few thorough treatments exist on the subject of connectivity conservation.
