Brings together contributions from leaders in landscape ecology and addresses the issue of how what we know about landscape ecology can help us understand, manage and maintain biodiversity.
From the reviews: "The ! volume, 'Applying Landscape Ecology in Biological Conservation,' reviews how the different facets of landscape ecology apply to biological conservation. ! This volume is extremely well organized, a testament to Gutzwiller's leadership as editor. ! offers more than a landscape perspective to students, scientists, and resource managers who wish to stem the current global biodiversity crisis; it provides a roadmap to integrate our principles into conservation planning. If this book is any indication, the future of landscape ecology in biological conservation is brightly indeed." (Brian Sturtevant, International Association of Landscape Ecology, Issue 19, 2004) "Like conservation biology, landscape ecology is a young science, with new findings and applications rapidly emerging. For this reason, this comprehensive recent text serves as an important reference for today's practitioners, researchers, and students. Forty-eight internationally recognized authors contribute chapters that together cover topics including the movements of organisms among habitats, the invasions of exotic species, the effects of roads and logging, conservation planning for aquatic ecosystems, and much more."
