About this book

This volume's concept, "ecoscape," has been formed for the purpose of comprehending the spatial configuration (geography) of an ecosystem. Using this method, the contributors place emphasis not on things, but on the spatial patternings of relations and interrelations. Through the related notion of economy, conceptualized as the management of the ecoscape, contributors investigate ethical problems and value choices in light of the way that we are contextualized in the world. By envisioning specific environments as spatial processes of events composed of interrelated patternings, the co-editors intend to provide a fresh approach for framing the problems that beset our world.

The contributors to Ecoscapes convince us that scholars of "all" disciplines must remain earthbound as we theorize. [It] is a must-read for any serious scholar.--Lorentzen, Lois Ann
