Appreciating ecological complexity: Habitat contours as a conceptual landscape model

Fischer, Joern; Fazey, Ioan; Lindenmayer, David

Description

Organisms respond to their surroundings at multiple spatial scales, and different organisms respond differently to the same environment. Existing landscape models, such as the "fragmentation model" (or patch-matrix-corridor model) and the "variegation model," can be limited in their ability to explain complex patterns for different species and across multiple scales. An alternative approach is to conceptualize landscapes as overlaid species-specific habitat contour maps. Key characteristics of...[Show more]
