Journal "Conservation Biology" about ecological connectivity and corridors

The April 2010 virtual issue of the journal Conservation biology contains several articles on connectivity and corridors.The articles address phenomena and actions that affect movement of genes, organisms (including humans), and ecological processes.
Advances in technology and computing power permit stronger inference about the probability that given interventions will achieve targets for connectivity. Articles also emphasize the influence of social and economic context on maintenance of connectivity. Some examples of the articles: Consequences and costs of conservation corridors, Ecological networks as conceptual frameworks or operational tools in conservation, A meta-analytic review of corridor effectiveness.
Conservation Biology is the most influential and frequently cited journal in its field. It publishes groundbreaking papers and is instrumental in defining the key issues contributing to the science and practice of conserving Earth's biological diversity.
