Nature conservation 2: the role of corridors

D. A. Saunders, R. J. Hobbs

Research output: Book/ReportEdited book/Anthologypeer-review


Publishes the proceedings of a conference held in Western Australia in 1989, and presents recent information on landscape corridor function, including practical advice on issues relating to corridor function management. The layout follows that of the conference with 38 chapters divided into four sections: inventory and assessment of corridors; values of corridors; movement of biota; and management, establishment, maintenance and rehabilitation. Each section is introduced by a theoretical review followed by up to six contributed papers, these covering work on all aspects of landscape corridors, mainly in Australia, but also in Belgium, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and the US. The penultimate chapter contains summaries of most of the workshop discussions held, and the final chapter comprises the editors' views on the outcome of the conference and where research and management should be directed in the future. The majority of papers are abstracted separately. The principal findings of the conference are published separately in a 21-page booklet (ISBN 0 949324 38 8), in a form designed for use by land managers in the management of linear remnants for nature conservation. -J.W.Cooper
