Abstract This report presents the results of an analysis of the ecological network for Ramat Hanadiv. We used the LARCH Landscape ecological model to assess, first, the long-term viability of the wildlife populations of Ramat Hanadiv, and secondly, to identify where the most important landscape connections or corridors are situated. Analysis shows that almost no species are viable in Ramat Hanadiv alone; almost all require some exchange with surrounding populations. The exchange with surrounding areas is therefore essential for biodiversity in Ramat Hanadiv. Specific de-fragmentation measures are important. The best measure to improve viability is to ensure that a corridor eastward is maintained. The best location for the corridor is most likely through the industrial zone. A potential corridor through the Taninim River would be another option. This would likely require further study and a significantly larger investment of resources.
