How edges and corridors can strongly influence landscape biodiversity?
Then, how do corridors influence landscape biodiversity?
Landscape Corridors Promote Plant Diversity By Preventing Species Loss. Landscape corridors - thin strips of habitat that connect isolated patches of habitat -- are lifelines for native plants that live in the connected patches and therefore are a useful tool for conserving biodiversity.
Regarding this, what are edges and corridors?
Edges: boundaries between ecosystems. Wildlife (movement) corridors: an area of habitat, such as a narrow strip, which connects otherwise isolated patches of habitat that may be separated by human structures and activities.
Usually three levels of biodiversity are discussed—genetic, species, and ecosystem diversity. Genetic diversity is all the different genes contained in all individual plants, animals, fungi, and microorganisms. It occurs within a species as well as between species.
