The Impact of Habitat Fragmentation on Native Species in New Hampshire
Southern New Hampshire University
Habitat fragmentation is the act of splitting up habitats due to human activity, such as building roads, neighborhoods, or other forms of human development. This impacts local species negatively because it disforms or removes their habitats which can leave lasting impacts on their health and safety. In New Hampshire, there is very little discussion or focus on the impact of habitat fragmentation on native or migratory species. This paper will discuss the ways in which we can protect these species through different adaption strategies. The results show that with these strategies we can effectively support these species with ease.
