PLoS ONE 3:e2502. 2008..Protecting these potential future refugia and facilitating species dispersal will be essential to maintain biodiversity in the face of climate change...
- On population growth near protected areasLucas N Joppa
Nicholas School of the Environment, Duke University, Durham, North Carolina, United States of America
PLoS ONE 4:e4279. 2009..As such, protected areas may attract or repel human settlement. Disproportionate increases in population growth near protected area boundaries may threaten their ability to conserve biodiversity...
- Understanding movement data and movement processes: current and emerging directionsRobert S Schick
Nicholas School of the Environment and Earth Sciences, Duke University, Durham, NC 27708 0328, USA
Ecol Lett 11:1338-50. 2008..This model moves away from traditional random walks, and instead focuses inference on how moving animals with complex behavior interact with their landscape and make choices about its suitability...
- On the protection of "protected areas"Lucas N Joppa
Nicholas School of the Environment and Earth Sciences, Box 90328, Duke University, Durham, NC 23708, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 105:6673-8. 2008..Finally, we ask whether global databases on protected areas are biased toward highly protected areas and ignore "paper parks." Analysis of a Brazilian database does not support this presumption...
