Modelling space use and dispersal of mammals in real landscapes: A tool for conservation Article in Journal of Biogeography 30(4) - April with 46 Reads How we measure 'reads'.

Abstract. Studies on animal space use can reveal insights into how animals interact with one another and their environment. Research on the space use patterns of the endangered giant panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) in China has nevertheless lagged behind that of many other species, as a government moratorium prevented telemetry data collection on pandas from to Cited by: A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text.

Initially designed to predict distributions of species from incomplete datasets, SDMs may also identify environmental conditions associated with higher. The use of spatially explicit population models (SEPMs) may assist in a better understanding of taxon space use and dispersal (Macdonald & Rushton, ) while response surface models can display intraspecific adaptations of plants such as Pinus ponderosa to varying environmental conditions across its range (Humphries & Bourgerou, ).Cited by: Conservation efforts to re-establish a wild population via reintroduction by the US Fish and Wildlife Service have been overseen by Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife since The use of noninvasive genetic testing of fecal pellets provides insight.

Folks call me Jay. I'm an applied ecologist working at the Geosciences and Environmental Change Science Center.

Trained as an ecologist, I originally worked on spatial ecology and conservation biology, including a USGS-funded post doc at University of Miami modelling reptile and amphibian responses to possible restoration scenarios in the Everglades.

It thus follows that adopting a landscape ecological perspective to metapopulation dynamics entails understanding how a spatial pattern, such as habitat fragmentation or heterogeneity, affects the processes that contribute to the dynamics of spatially structured populations.

Cryptogams, invertebrates, and other inconspicuous groups are of great importance in the functioning of ecosystems (Hafernik ; Vanderpoorten and Goffinet ).But, they have not received as much attention as charismatic taxonomic groups, such as flowering plants, mammals, or birds, for the establishment of conservation measures or the study of biodiversity patterns (Oliver.

In conservation, there is a high demand for methods to predict how animals respond to human infrastructure, such as estimating the location of road mortalities and evaluating the effectiveness of mitigation measures. Computer-based simulation models have emerged as an important tool in understanding wildlife-infrastructure interactions.

The major focus of my research is the investigation of factors that influence the distribution and abundance of terrestrial vertebrates. This research has been stimulated by my curiosity on the one hand about the causes of many intriguing patterns of vertebrate distributions in the Australian fauna, and concern on the other that many species have declined or become extinct with the advent of.

Introduction. Large mammals around the world are under increasing pressure from habitat loss and overhunting, with many species holding out only in small, fragmented populations (Dirzo et al., ; Ripple et al., ).Preventing local extirpations and restoring populations across their historical ranges are central conservation goals, given the critical importance of large mammals in food Author: K.

I can only answer this from my own point of view and personal experience of using GIS (mainly Esri based technology: ArcGIS Server, ArcGIS Desktop w x!) - but I will also mention uses cases that I know of that are interesting but. Conservation and management of comparatively less modified landscapes adjacent to highly modified landscapes requires careful consideration of interactions between landscape types.

Restoration or conservation of habitat within a developed matrix is generally thought to have beneficial effects on landscape-level ecological processes.

Conservation regulations aimed at restricting resource use are commonly used to manage and protect natural resources but their implementation depends on the compliance of resource users. The design of effective regulations should be informed by an understanding of the factors that affect compliance, considering contextual socio-economic.
