Adapting the Landscape to Climate Change: linking Ecosystem Networks

C.C. Vos, J. Verboom

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingAbstract

Abstract

Adaptation strategies to improve resilience of ecosystems to the effects of climate change should be focussed on a landscape scale and not on single reserves. The processes of range shifts and increased population fluctuations, caused by climate change, will interact with habitat fragmentation and human-induced land use changes. Landscape ecology can contribute to the knowledge of these dynamics and the development of effective adaptation strategies.
