Beyond fragmentation: the continuum model for fauna research and conservation in human-modified landscapes

Fischer, Joern; Lindenmayer, David B


Animal distribution patterns in human-modified landscapes are often examined from the basis of the "fragmentation model", which recognises habitat patches located within an inhospitable matrix. The fragmentation model can establish correlations between landscape pattern and animal distribution patterns. However, it is limited in its ability to generate a process-based understanding of species distribution patterns. Here we propose a process-based conceptual landscape model.
