The future of the world's biological diversity may depend upon maintaining population connectivity across highly fragmented landscapes. Biological corridors are linear habitat features designed to link similar habitats across a modified landscape. Their successful function in moving wildlife will depend on both the habitat quality and species' requirements. Early recognition of the value of corridors in long-term conservation is fundamental for their success, as it ensures the inclusion of remnant habitat in landscape planning.
