Vll advent The time period 'categorial grammar' was once brought by way of Bar-Rillel (1964, web page ninety nine) as a convenient manner of grouping jointly a few of his personal past paintings (1953) and the paintings of the Polish logicians and philosophers Lesniewski (1929) and Ajdukiewicz (1935), unlike techniques to linguistic research according to word constitution grammars.

Instead, corridor research needs to focus on the details of particular species and scales relevant to conservation practice (Noss and Beier 2000). Solid experimental research on the values of corridors is still lacking. As mentioned above, virtually all experimental research has focused on behavioral and population responses of specific animals. Scientists have not explored the community- or ecosystem-level effects of corridors on such factors as disturbance, exotic species invasions, predation, and species richness (Beier and Noss 1998).

Environmental factors are likely to change in different magnitudes and in different directions as climate changes. Since different environmental factors limit the distributions of different species, there may be a need for multiple corridors. These would allow all species in an ecosystem to shift their distributions to new, suitable locations. Source: Hobbs and Hopkins 1991. connectivity, and habitat quality (Thorne 1993). Width determines how much of the corridor interior is exposed to disturbances or edge effects, whether natural or human-induced, from the surrounding matrix.

Roads are most likely to benefit wildlife movement when they receive light use and include a broad swath of intact habitat on either side (Bennett 1991). The potential for roadways to serve as biological corridors is limited, however, by hazards that also make roads formidable barriers to wildlife movement. Roads attract some animals, which can then experience high roadkill mortality. Roadkill is the leading cause of death for several large mammal species in Florida, including Florida panthers, black bears, and Key deer (Odocoileus virginianus clavium) (Harris and Gallagher 1989).
