As habitats become increasingly fragmented, the importance of fine-scale landscape features, such as paddock trees and strips of roadside vegetation, are becoming more apparent. These features can act as stepping stones for birds and animals. Importantly, models for planning regional-scale connectivity do not represent fine-scale landscape features. We developed the GAP CLoSR decision-support tool to overcome this limitation. Conservation planners can use it to plan connectivity of fragmented landscapes at the regional scale while taking into account the connectivity implications of fine-scale landscape features. They can also use the tool to compare the connectivity implications of multiple regional-scale plans and strategies.
