variable > landscape connectivity

Preferred term

landscape connectivity  


  • Landscape connectivity is, broadly, \\"the degree to which the landscape facilitates or impedes movement among resource patches\\". Connectivity includes both structural connectivity (the physical arrangements of patches) and functional connectivity (the movement of individuals among patches). The degree to which a landscape is connected determines the amount of dispersal there is among patches, which influences gene flow, local adaptation, extinction risk, colonization probability, and the potential for organisms to move as they cope with climate change.
