Abstract This volume deals with the documented deleterious effects of habitat fragmentation on the survival of species. As a consequence, landscape planners are asked to present models for land use systems that ensure a better connectivity of habitats for endangered species. Results of ecological research presented in this volume show that habitat networks designed for target species are needed, at least in some cases. Consider, for instance, a regional network of open meadows and wetlands for white storks (Ciconia ciconia LINNAEUS, 1758) or a network of diy grasslands for butterfly populations (see Seufert & Grosser this volume: 268–274). However, when plans are executed and measures have been implemented to realize the network, the results will most often deviate from the original requirements.
