Applied Landscape Ecology

Developed a new framework for thinking about the provision of ecosystem services in fragmented landscapes and recently published in Trends in Ecology and Evolution (Mitchell et al. 2015). This applied concepts of landscape ecology to ecosystem services but incorporates ideas of the supply, demand and flow of services across landscapes. The implications are that landscape fragmentation can have non-intuitive impacts on ecoststem services if these factors are not accounted for. This is a key topic of ongoing research in CBCS.
