    Abstract

    Conservation efforts increasingly focus on the creation of habitat networks in order to reverse the negative effects of fragmentation by increasing the level of connectivity between habitat patches within anthropogenic landscapes. Creating habitat networks is thought to reduce the possible negative effects of climate change that might cause a shift in habitat conditions, by facilitating the dispersal of organisms through the landscape. In the UK, several initiatives have focused on the creation of habitat networks for woodland habitat. However, our understanding of the dispersal ability of species associated with woodland is severely lacking. Therefore, a study was undertaken examining the dispersal ability of the woodland invertebrate wood cricket (Nemobius sylvestris) on the Isle of Wight, UK.
