About this book

Addresses the links between landscape ecology and natural resource management. These links are discussed in the context of various landscape types, a diverse set of resources and a wide range of management issues. A large number of landscape ecology concepts, principles and methods are introduced and critical reviews of past management practices and a number of case studies are presented. This text provides many guidelines for managing natural resources from a landscape perspective and offers useful suggestions for landscape ecologists to carry out research relevant to natural resource management.

...incredibly well-written and informative...the book is outstanding, and represents an important contribution to landscape ecology and environmental management. Ecology "The 20 chapters, all by leaders in the field make this book an effective overview and a valuable reference for interested professionals."
