From the reviews: "The book focuses on the German, and European views of landscape ecology ! . I am deeply impressed by the variety of the presented aspects and disciplines. ! I will use the volume as a reference and as a dictionary. This book adequately communicates the wide spectrum of German landscape ecology ! an extraordinary performance. ! if there is nobody to give you this book, lend it from your library, it is worth reading. And of course, recommend it to your librarian." (Thomas Wohlgemuth, Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly, Vol. 33 (4), 2004)
