Analysing and modelling the impact of habitat fragmentation on species diversity: a macroecological perspective

Abstract:

The destruction and fragmentation of natural habitat is the leading driver of the current extinction crisis. As a result, a research area has emerged focused on studying ecology in islands of natural habitat surrounded by a sea of anthropogenic land uses, so called ‘habitat islands’. However, this research has largely been undertaken on small-medium scales, generally in single systems.
