"A clear and concise description of habitat loss, fragmentation, and climate change, which leads one to the conclusion that animals and plants need habitat connectivity in order to persist."-- "Conservation Biology"

"This is a definitive guide and resource for scientists and policymakers, and should be essential reading for local and regional planners."-- "The Biologist"
