Using a geographical information system as an integrative landscape management tool : a case study of woodland habitat networks in West Sussex, by Sarah Elizabeth Hilda McKenzie, 2008 at Sussex University (Ph.D. thesis)
Habitat fragmentation as a result of human activity is of growing concern. Direct habitat loss results in small habitat patches separated by an increasingly hostile matrix of arable land. This has implications for species and habitat conservation, which are required under national and international legislation. The study area has two internationally important woodland sites that are separated by arable land and a small number of isolated woodland patches. Habitat networks are one response to the impacts of habitat fragmentation on biodiversity and such approaches are recognised in national and international policy instruments.
