The term ‘ecology connectivity’ refers to; ‘…a measure of the functional availability of the habitats needed for a particular species to move through a given area. Examples include the flight lines used by bats to travel between roosts whilst foraging.' Ref The HS2 London-West Midlands Environmental Statement, published by the Department for Transport in November 2013.
Glasgow City Development Plan, Published by Glasgow City Council in 2016, defines ecological connectivity as: ‘The functional connectivity between ecosystems, allowing habitats to expand and adapt and allowing species to feed, move, reproduce, etc. and helping avoid the negative effects of isolated habitats – similar to integrated habitat network.’
