Importance of spatio-temporal connectivity to maintain species experiencing range shifts

Jun-Long Huang, Marco Andrello, Alexandre Martensen, Santiago Saura, Dian-Feng Liu, Jian-Hua He & Marie-Josée Fortin
Climate change can affect the habitat resources available to species by changing habitat quantity, suitability and spatial configuration, which largely determine population persistence in the landscape. In this context, dispersal is a central process for species to track their niche. Assessments of the amount of reachable habitat (ARH) using static snap-shots do not account, however, for the temporal overlap of habitat patches that may enhance stepping-stone effects. Here, we quantified the impacts of climate change...
