Technical Report
Full-text available
Canada has committed to developing effective and representative marine conservation networks. Guidance for the development of these networks focuses on core design features, including the incorporation of ecologically and biologically significant areas, ecological representation, replication, connectivity, and adequacy/viability. Network planning u...
Article
Full-text available
Globally, protected areas are being established to protect biodiversity and to promote ecosystem resilience. The typical spatial conservation planning process leading to the creation of these protected areas focuses on representation and replication of ecological features, often using decision support tools such as Marxan. Yet, despite the importan...
Article
Full-text available
Marine protected areas (MPAs) are an area-based conservation strategy commonly used to safeguard marine biodiversity and ecosystem services. Ecological connectivity governs the exchange of individuals among spatially fragmented habitats and is often highlighted as an important element in the design of MPAs. However, the degree to which measured or...

Marine protected area (MPA) networks are commonly designated to achieve ecosystem-level conservation objectives. To design MPA networks capable of achieving such objectives, there has been a strong emphasis placed on the importance of incorporating connectivity into their design. Approaches to incorporate connectivity, however, have primarily been...

Review the current use of population connectivity in the research and management literature. Use Canadian case studies to measure connectivity patterns using multiple methods and minimal data. Provide recommendations for the inclusion of population connectivity in MPA design based on data availability and management objectives.
