investigates the causes and consequences of environmental
heterogeneity—the reciprocal effects of pattern and process—ranging from
human land-use and planning considerations to ecological and
evolutionary considerations of biota within landscapes, including
aquatic and marine environments.
In this new, fully up-to-date and
comprehensive text, the principles and applications of landscape ecology
are presented in an engaging and accessible format, enriched by the
complementary experiences of the authors to give this treatment a
broadly international perspective. Suitable for upper-level
undergraduate or graduate courses in landscape ecology, this textbook
could also be used as a supplemental text in courses on forestry,
resource and wildlife management, conservation and restoration biology,
and land-use planning. For the professional, this book provides a
complete reference to the important concepts, methods, and applications
of landscape ecology. This book is thus relevant to ecologists, resource
management professionals, wildlife and fisheries biologists,
conservation biologists, land-use planners, and policy makers who are
interested in understanding the consequences of spatial heterogeneity
and/or are charged with incorporating landscape ecological principles
into their research or management programs.
