Backyard Habitat and Biodiversity Article in Pacific Horticulture Magazine

Val wrote a new article on backyard habitat and biodiversity that was published in Pacific Horticulture Magazine here. The article includes a link to a Web Extra on ecological memory. Building on the original article on the importance of backyard habitat to urban biodiversity ( Rudd, H., Vala, J. and V.H. Schaefer 2002), in the journal Restoration Ecology, it elaborates on the possible impacts of unseen thresholds, synergisms, layered landscapes, novel ecosystems and connectivity embedded in backyard habitat and points out the major importance of gardening in supporting these processes.
