EDGES - Ecologically Scaled Edge Responses: Patterns, Mechanisms and Predictive Modelling

Edge effects are among the key processes affecting biological populations and communities in fragmented landscapes, mediating landscape-scale patterns in species richness and abundance. This has been the subject of intense research over the past decades, demonstrating that edge-responses are species-specific, though there is often major intraspecific variation in relation to a range of factors such as edge characteristics and landscape context.
