Successful conservation and management of natural resources requires an understanding of how components comprising an ecosystem are connected and interact with one another. Quantifying this connectivity (ecological or social-ecological) requires approaches that distill the complexity inherent within these systems. Here I present on empirical research quantifying population connectivity to inform the design of a marine protected area network in southern California, and using matrix- and network-based approaches assess risk to the current and future production of coastal ecosystem services in South Florida.
