The historic range of variability of land covers, and evidence-based knowledge about threshold intervals for local species extinction due to habitat loss, can be combined to derive quantitative targets for landscape restoration. Our study exemplifies this by using grasslands and avian umbrella species to show that the combined loss, alteration, and fragmentation over the past 200 years led to a 98–100% decline in habitat functionality. This stresses the need to define the historic range of variability in relation to species’ requirements for maintaining functional habitat networks. View this paper
