About this book

The Handbook provides a supporting guide to key aspects and applications of landscape ecology to underpin its research and teaching. A wide range of contributions written by expert researchers in the field summarize the latest knowledge on landscape ecology theory and concepts, landscape processes, methods and tools, and emerging frontiers.

Landscape ecology is an interdisciplinary and holistic discipline, and this is reflected in the chapters contained in this Handbook. Authors from varying disciplinary backgrounds tackle key concepts such as landscape structure and function, scale and connectivity; landscape processes such as disturbance, flows, and fragmentation; methods such as remote sensing and mapping, fieldwork, pattern analysis, modelling, and participation and engagement in landscape planning; and emerging frontiers such as ecosystem services, landscape approaches to biodiversity conservation, and climate change. Each chapter provides a blend of the latest scientific understanding of its focal topics along with considerations and examples of their application from around the world.

An invaluable guide to the concepts, methods, and applications of landscape ecology, The Routledge Handbook of Landscape Ecology will be an important reference text for a wide range of students and academics in ecology, geography, biology, and interdisciplinary environmental studies.

Customer Reviews


Robert A. Francis is a Reader in Ecology in the Department of Geography at King’s College London. His research focuses on urban ecology, freshwater ecology, and nature and society interactions. He edited A Handbook of Global Freshwater Invasive Species and co-edited Urban Landscape Ecology: Science Policy and Practice (with James D.A. Millington and Michael A. Chadwick) and the Routledge Handbook of Biosecurity and Invasive Species (with Kezia Barker), all by Routledge.

James D.A. Millington is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Geography at King’s College London. He is a geographer and landscape ecologist with expertise in using computational and statistical modelling tools to investigate spatial ecological and socio-economic processes and their interaction. Research topics include agent-based modelling, ecological impacts of land-use change and disturbances (particularly wildfires), and tele-coupling. He is the co-editor of Urban Landscape Ecology: Science Policy and Practice (with Robert A. Francis and Michael A. Chadwick).

George L.W. Perry is a Professor in the School of Environment at the University of Auckland. His research is focused on the dynamics of forest ecosystems at spatial scales from the population to the landscape and at temporal scales from decades to millennia.

Emily S. Minor is Associate Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Her research explores human alteration of the landscape and how this can affect ecological communities and processes at the landscape scale.
