Ecological networks are strategies for conceptually and functionally linking sites with each other and with wider systems. They are crucial for the conservation of migratory species, which are severely threatened by habitat fragmentation.
Parties to the Convention on Migratory Species at the 10th Meeting of their Conference in 2011 adopted a landmark Resolution (10.3) on this subject, which spelled out key principles and recommended actions, and called for a strategic review, now provided in this report.
The review draws on a compilation of case studies and builds on earlier work by examining in new depth the contribution of ecological networks to migratory species conservation, and offers a strategic view of the most promising action areas for CMS Parties and others in future.
