Action: Maintain/create habitat corridors in developed areas
Key messagesRead our guidance on Key messages before continuing
- We found no studies that evaluated the effects of maintaining or creating habitat corridors in developed areas on shrublands.
'We found no studies’ means that we have not yet found any studies that have directly evaluated this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action.
Maintaining habitat corridors in areas with widespread human land use has been suggested as a method to retain connectivity between sites (Beier and Noss, 1998). This connectivity may help to maintain interactions between plant and animals such as pollination and seed dispersal, which can aid survival of plant populations and maintain species diversity.
