Natural or Mixed WHS located in a Biological Corridor.
A Biological Corridor (a.k.a. Wildlife Corridor or Habitat Corridor)"is an area of habitat connecting wildlife populations separated by human activities or structures (such as roads, development, or logging). This allows an exchange of individuals between populations, which may help prevent the negative effects of inbreeding and reduced genetic diversity (via genetic drift) that often occur within isolated populations. Corridors may also help facilitate the re-establishment of populations that have been reduced or eliminated due to random events (such as fires or disease)." (wiki - Wildlife corridor)
Generally, three types of corridor are distinguished: Regional, Sub-regional and Local. The Connection is limited to WHS located in Region or Sub-regional corridors. The Corridor must extend beyond the boundaries of the WHS.
The connection belongs to Ecology connections.
Do you know of another WHS we could connect to Biological Corridor?
A connection should:
- Not be "self evident"
- Link at least 3 different sites
- Not duplicate or merely subdivide the "Category" assignment already identified on this site.
- Add some knowledge or insight (whether significant or trivial!) about WHS for the users of this site
- Be explained, with reference to a source
