Research in Habitat Fragmentation: Are We Moving in the Right Direction?

The fragmentation of habitats has often been listed as one of the major threats to species survival, and the study of its effects has emerged in the past couple of decades, as a focused research theme in conservation biology [1-4]. Fragmented landscapes, owing to exposure to the surrounding matrix, are known to cause several alterations to the remnant habitat, depriving it of its native vegetation, and in the process making it vulnerable to further modifications [5]. Several species-oriented researches have indicated that habitat fragmentation negatively affects virtually all taxonomic groups [6-9]. The situation is so bleak that currently one in every four mammals is facing the risk of extinction due to habitat fragmentation, and related threats [10].
