Abstract The problem of habitat fragmentation is affecting the chances of survival of an increasing number of animal species. The Eurasian badger is a typical example of such a species. Plans and measures addressing the problem of habitat fragmentation have toprovide for ecological qualities both within natural areas and in connecting areas in between. A computer model has been developed for determining the effectiveness of such plans and measures regarding both elements for the badger. As a test the model was applied to three different scenarios that reflect different spatial developments in the future.
