Merging connectivity rules and large-scale condition assessment improves conservation adequacy in river systems

Linke, Simon; Kennard, Mark; Hermoso, Virgilio; Olden, Julian; Stein, Janet; Pusey, Brad

Description

Conservation adequacy is defined as the ability of conservation measures to sustain biodiversity. Although river network connectivity is important for maintaining key ecological processes and ensuring persistence of biodiversity, it also facilitates the propagation of threats along river networks, which may compromise the sustainability of freshwater biodiversity and therefore conservation adequacy. This study aims to introduce two modifications to river conservation planning related to...[Show more]
