Example text

While strictly speaking this may be David B. Lindenmayer and J. 1 Graphical representation of a contour-based conceptual landscape model. The model recognizes gradual changes in habitat suitability through space. Habitat contours are the emergent spatial pattern resulting from a myriad of ecological processes, including availability of suitable food, shelter and climate and sufficient space, as well as competition, predation and other interspecific processes. true, it poses a difficult challenge to land management (Simberloff 1998).

(1999) A framework for conceptualizing human impacts on landscapes and its relevance to management and research models. Conservation Biology 13, 1282–1292. G.

(2002b) How grassland plants are distributed over five human-created habitats typical of eucalypt woodlands in a variegated landscape.

Therefore, a careful appraisal of models is needed to underpin landscape and conservation planning – although this is rarely done, and either the island model or the patch-matrix-corridor model is almost always used. 3 Considering the effects of landscape change from the perspective of a single species is a useful starting point to understand key ecological processes. The landscape contour model is a potentially useful tool to conceptualize the distribution of individual species in landscapes. 4 Given that it is impossible to study in detail every single species and every associated landscape change process that impacts on that species, it can be useful to focus on landscape patterns and multispecies responses.
