This book brings together leading figures from the field to provide an up-to-date survey of recent advances, identify key research problems. Leading landscape ecologists provide in-depth reviews and syntheses of a series of key issues, including adequacy of landscape data, spatial pattern analysis, heterogeneity and ecosystem processes, metapopulations, scaling, landscape pattern optimization, land use change, and landscape conservation, management, planning, and design.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of a momentous meeting in the history of landscape ecology—the Landscape Ecology Workshop held in Allerton Park, Illinois, USA in On this special occasion, I am inspired to make some observations and comments on the state-of-the-science of landscape ecology as a tribute to this historic by: Contemporary landscape ecology is characterized by a flux of ideas and perspectives that cut across a number of disciplines in both natural and social sciences, as evidenced in the previous chapters of this volume.

Progress at the interface of ecosystem and landscape ecology has been rel­ atively slow, despite a tradition in Eastern Europe (e.g., Ryszkowski and KedzioraRyszkowski et al. ) and stronger connections during the early development of landscape ecology in North America (e.g., Risser et al.Gosz ).File Size: 4MB.

Much of the strength of landscape ecology lies in its ability to address challenges over large areas, over spatial and temporal scales at which decision-making often occurs. Key topics in landscape ecology. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. MLA Citation. Wu, Jianguo. and Hobbs, R.

Key topics in landscape ecology / edited by Jiango Wu, Richard Hobbs Cambridge University Press Cambridge Australian/Harvard Citation. Wu, Jianguo. Landscape Ecology draws together expertise from both biophysical and socioeconomic sciences to explore basic and applied research questions concerning the ecology, conservation, management, design/planning, and sustainability of landscapes as.

Key issues discussed within these chapters are landscape metrics (in particular relating them to understanding ecological processes), the relationship between ecosystem processes and spatial heterogeneity, meta‐population Author: PEARSON, DIANE. Book series Cambridge Studies in Landscape Ecology.

Cambridge Studies in Landscape Ecology presents synthetic and comprehensive examinations of topics that reflect the breadth of the discipline of landscape ecology.

The focus is on spatial relationships at a variety of scales, in both natural and highly modified landscapes, on the factors that create landscape. Landscape ecology is often defined by it focus on the role of humans in creating and affecting landscape patterns and process.

Indeed, landscape ecology is sometimes considered to be an interdisciplinary science dealing with the interrelation between human society and its living environment. Hence, a great deal of landscape ecology deals with. Landscape ecology has been defined in various ways partly because the word ‘landscape’ means quite different things to people with different scientific and cultural backgrounds.

Landscapes are spatial mosaics of interacting biophysical and socioeconomic components (Figure 1).Just as in other ecological disciplines, a spectrum of views exists as to the relative.

Landscape ecology has emerged in the past decade as an important and useful tool for land-use planners and landscape architects. While professionals and scholars have begun to incorporate aspects of this new field into their work, there remains a need for a summary of key principles and how they might be applied in design and planning.

Key concepts and research topics in landscape ecology revisited: 30 years after the Allerton Park workshop. As timely assessments of key topics in landscape ecology are critically important for advancing the theory and practice of the field, the journal encourages the submission of reviews and perspective articles that synthesize existing knowledge and ideas, critique existing perspectives and approaches, and explore new research frontiers.

Landscape ecology is the science of studying and improving the relationship between spatial pattern and ecological processes on a multitude of scales and organizational levels.

In a broad sense, landscape ecology represents both a field of study and a scientific paradigm. Landscape Ecology. This book, Landscape Ecology has written to present major and efficient applications in landscape ecology, as well as to propose a solid action for this category of topics.

The book aims to illustrate various treatment methods of the land-use models impact on landscape ecology creation. Author(s): Amjad Almusaed. Key topics in landscape ecology.

On the other hand, more than 65 years after the term “landscape ecology” was first introduced, landscape ecologists are still debating on what constitutes a landscape and what landscape ecology really is (e.g., WiensHobbsWiens and MossWu and Hobbs ).Cited by: Seascape Ecology provides a comprehensive look at the state-of-the-science in the application of landscape ecology to the seas and provides guidance for future research priorities.

The first book devoted exclusively to this rapidly emerging and increasingly important discipline, it is comprised of contributions from researchers at the forefront of seascape ecology working. Scale and heterogeneity are two key concepts in landscape ecology which are inherently related.

Scale would matter little in a world where entities and relationships remain invariant across space or time, or in a landscape that is spatially or temporally homogeneous (i.e., uniform or random).Cited by: Books in the series: Cambridge Studies in Landscape Ecology.
