Connectivity or area – what drives plant species richness in habitat corridors? has been accepted in Landscape Ecology.

Authors Thiele J, Kellner S, Buchholz S & Schirmel J

In particular, the richness of plant species that are dispersal limited and confined to semi-natural habitats benefits from connective networks of linear landscape elements in agricultural landscapes.
