National distribution of forest connectivity for year 2006 and forest connectivity change in the period 2000-2006

Figure Created 16 Feb 2015 Published 01 Dec 2015 Last modified 25 Jul 2016
The map show the proportion of landscape units per connectivity range reported by country for the year 2006. The trend (medium/low increase/decrease or stable) in the proportion of units in a high connectivity range (above 50%) is given for the period 2000-2006 per country. Species dispersing is 1 km.

How to read the map:

The proportion of landscape units per connectivity ranges is reported by country for the year 2006. The trend (medium/low increase/decrease or stable) of the proportion of units in a high connectivity range (above 50%) is given for the period 2000-2006 per country. Estonia and Lithuania, two countries with the same amount of forests (2.2 million ha), exhibit a different landscape distribution per connectivity ranges (81% of landscapes with poorly connected woodlands in Lithuania versus 51% in Estonia). In the period 2000-2006, landscapes with well-connected forest lands (connectivity above 50%) tended to increase in Lithuania but to decrease in Estonia.
