Assessing landscape functional connectivity in a forest carnivore using path selection functions

New road ecology paper investigates the effect of road networks on functional connectivity for a small carnivore. Using radio tracking and habitat data the authors generated map conductive surfaces for common genets in Portugal. They found that as road density increased, connectivity for genets declined, however peaks in connectivity occurred near culverts, bridges and viaducts.
