About this book

The challenges in ecosystem science encompass a broadening and strengthening of interdisciplinary ties, the transfer of knowledge of the ecosystem across scales, and the inclusion of anthropogenic impacts and human behavior into ecosystem, landscape, and regional models. The volume addresses these points within the context of studies in major ecosystem types viewed as the building blocks of central European landscapes.

... a highly valuable book, teaching us more about the ecological functioning of ecosystems in the landscape framework. (Folia Geobotanica, Journal of Plant Ecology and Systematics)
