The Effects of Landscape Resistance on Inter-Wetland Movements of Hawaiian Stilts on Oahu.Lello-Smith, Anna M.
Abstract: Habitat fragmentation increases extinction risk by dividing populations into “islands” of smaller populations. By restricting movement across the landscape, habitat fragmentation can disrupt biological processes and threaten long-term population persistence. In the Hawaiian Islands, habitat loss and fragmentation have contributed to a high rate of avian species loss. Bird movement betwee... read more
