Applying Nature's Design

Anthony Anderson & Clinton N. Jenkins.  2006.  Applying Nature’s Design: Corridors as a Strategy for Biodiversity

Applying Nature's Design offers a comprehensive and insightful overview of the design and effectiveness of corridors. The authors' multifaceted analysis combines a succinct review of the conceptual issues with tangible examples of how the implementation of corridors has played out in the real world.
