Title: The devil is in the dispersers: Predictions of landscape connectivity change with demography

Author: Elliot, Nicholas B.; Cushman, Samuel A.; Macdonald, David W.; Loveridge, Andrew J.;

Date: 2014

Source: Journal of Applied Ecology. 51: 1169-1178.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Concern about the effects of habitat fragmentation has led to increasing interest in dispersal and connectivity modelling. Most modern techniques for connectivity modelling have resistance surfaces as their foundation. However, resistance surfaces for animal movement are frequently estimated without considering dispersal, despite being the principal natural mechanism by which organisms move between populations.

Keywords: conditional logistic regression, connectivity, landscape resistance, least-cost path, natal dispersal, Panthera leo, path level analysis, resistance surfaces
