About this book

Through a series of personal essays, this book addresses a wide array of past, current, and future issues in landscape ecology. The essays have been contributed by leading landscape ecologists from North America, Europe, and Australia, and they therefore provide an overview of the rich tapestry of viewpoints and perspectives that make landscape ecology at once a focused and a frustratingly diverse discipline. The essays span multiple spectrums, addressing theory as well as practice, science as well as application, conservation as well as utilization, and aquatic as well as terrestrial systems.
