Serves as a general introduction to this relatively new and emerging area of study, taking what the authors call a "top-down approach". That is to say, believing that context is equally as important as content and that an isolated, dismembered landscape fragment will lose biodiversity. The authors argue that the most detailed mathematical models of all the biodiversity within a landscape will not suffice to predict the outcome of management practices if the contextual analysis reveals that human impacts outside the landscape are contributing to a reserve's ultimate demise.
