Mindy: I’m super excited to talk to you today. We’ve had your husband, J Scott, on the show a couple of times, most recently episode 70, but we’ve never had you on the show. And J’s story is great, but that’s J’s story. Trees along linear features are important landscape features, and their loss threatens ecological connectivity. Until recently, trees outside of woodlands (TOWs) were largely unmapped however; the development of innovation mapping techniques provides opportunities to understand the distribution of such trees and to apply spatially explicit models to explore the importance of trees for connectivity. In this study, we demonstrate the utility of models when investigating tree loss and impacts on connectivity.
