Media reviews
'This book should be useful to educators, researchers, horticulturists and government officials responsible for land use issues.' Current Books on Gardening & Botany, 2001 'The author succeeds in conveying both the successes and current state of affairs in landscape ecology. Importantly, this is allied to a sense of the potential of landscape ecology as a conceptual and practical framework for addressing many of the contentious issues in conservation and land management that are currently being faced world-wide.' Dr Christopher Young, University of Wolverhampton, UK
