“…A nefarious combination of rapid agribusiness and infrastructure development, illdesigned and poorly enforced environmental laws, alongside few incentives for research and conservation are engendering a major biodiversity collapse in the Cerrado (Alves et al 2018;Fernandes et al 2017;Overbeck et al 2018;Strassburg et al 2017). De Marco et al (2020) assessed species and landscape vulnerability for threatened species of Cerrado mammals.…”

“…According to the self-recovery and anti-interference characteristics of the value elements of the study area, the vulnerability of the plant species can be measured from indicators such as the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) and community structure richness and soil type, which can directly or indirectly reflect the characteristics of vegetation [24,27,29]. The degree of protection indices for endangered species, as well as the endemic species, reflect the degree of protection and distribution of animal species and can directly or indirectly influence the distribution of animals after external disturbances [22,23]. Though reasonable grazing can ensure the natural succession of ecosystems and positively affect grassland regeneration and the nutrient supply for herbivorous wild animals, it can also indirectly affect the distribution of wild animals [58][59][60].…”

“…The bioecological component of OUV (criteria ix, x) for a WNHS reflects the ecological processes and characteristics of plants and animals in the ecosystem of the respective biogeographical area, the habitat and biodiversity. Biodiversity incorporates aspects such as species diversity, species composition, flora, vegetation type, fauna, vertical natural zone, International Union for the Conservation of Nature Species Survival Commission (IUCN/SSC) habitat type, habitat integrity, species richness, endangered species and endemic species [21][22][23][24][25].IUCN natural heritage experts comprehensively evaluate potential heritage areas to determine whether they satisfy the WNHS criteria in terms of the integrity, originality and threats to the OUV [6,12]. Integrity requires that OUV elements and areas with heritage values have uncompromising and regional holistic characteristics [13,26].…”
