About this book

Provides a broad overview of landscape ecology, including its development, the methods and techniques that are employed, the major questions addressed, and the insights that have been gained.

"Having a thorough textbook that explains the principles and techniques of landscape ecology is an important resource. [...] This book takes a North American approach at an introductory level, filling a void in the landscape ecology literature. [...] The discussion questions and recommended readings at the end of each chapter guide teaching and learning. [...] The text is a real boon to professors and students. [...] The book is a thorough treatment of the current activities of landscape ecology, and I recommend it highly."
– Nancy E. McIntyre, Ecology, 83 (1), 2002

"An ecologist's viewpoint on the theories and uses of a burgeoning multidisciplinary subject is proffered. [...] It is an informative, comprehensive, up-to-date and generally well-written account which will be of considerable use to its target readership of advanced undergraduate, postgraduate and professional ecologists."
– Robert Jones, Geography, October, 2002

"All chapters end with a series of stimulating questions for discussion and some well-selected recommendations for further reading. [...] This is not an introductory text; it assumes, for example, a background knowledge of GIS, fractal geometry, and modelling principles. It will therefore prove useful for advanced undergraduate or postgraduate courses in this discipline."
– Bulletin of the British Ecological Society, Vol. 33 (1), 2002
