The ultimate goal of my research is to marry landscape models with empirical data on species responses to spatial patterns of habitat in the landscape in order to predict how faunal communities will change through time: I want to predict where and when populations will decline and species will go locally extinct as landscapes are transformed.  This research has three components: (1) empirical investigations into species responses to spatial patterns of habitat within landscapes; (2) spatial modelling of habitat loss and landscape change; and (3) drawing together the landscape models and empirical data to generate biodiversity scenarios.
