Individual PAs have different roles in maintaining connectivity, depending on their size and location. We measured their contribution to network connectivity (irreplaceability) for carnivores and ungulates and combined it with a measure of vulnerability based on a 30-year trend in remotely sensed vegetation cover (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index). Highly irreplaceable PAs occurred mainly in southern and eastern Africa. Vegetation cover change was generally faster outside than inside PAs and particularly so in southern Africa. The extent of change increased with the distance from PAs. About 5% of highly irreplaceable PAs experienced a faster vegetation cover loss than their surroundings, thus requiring particular conservation attention. Our analysis identified PAs at risk whose isolation would disrupt the connectivity of the PA network for large mammals. This is an example of how ecological spatial modelling can be combined with large-scale remote sensing data to investigate how land cover change may affect ecological processes and species conservation.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Safi, Kamran</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Dech, Stefan</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Rocchini, Duccio</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Santini, Luca</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Wegmann, Martin</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
