Using ideal distributions of the time since habitat was disturbed to build metrics for evaluating landscape condition

Tulloch, Ayesha; McDonald, Jane; Cosier, P.; Sbrocchi, Carla; Stein, John; Lindenmayer, David B; Possingham, Hugh P

Description

Developing a standardized approach to measuring the state of biodiversity in landscapes undergoing disturbance is crucial for evaluating and comparing change across different systems, assessing ecosystem vulnerability and the impacts of destructive activities, and helping direct species recovery actions. Existing ecosystem metrics of condition fail to acknowledge that a particular community could be in multiple states, and the distribution of states could worsen or improve when impacted by a...[Show more]
