How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
1. Biodiversity conservation requires modeling tools capable of predicting the presence or absence (i.e., occurrence-state) of species in habitat patches. Local habitat characteristics of a patch (lh), the cost of traversing the landscape matrix between patches (weighted connectivity [wc]), and the position of the patch in the habitat network topol...
Worldwide, the expansion of settlement and transport infrastructure is one of the most important proximate as well as ultimate causes of biodiversity loss. As much as every modern human society depends on a network of settlements that is well-connected by transport infrastructure (i.e. settlement network), animal and plant species depend on network...
The overall goal of this project is to couple habitat networks with settlement-transport networks, to determine the interactions and feedbacks within and between the networks. CHECNET is financed by the Swiss National Science Foundation. For more details see: http://www.plus.ethz.ch/research/forschungsprojekte/checnet.html
