Overview

The book gives a fundamental representation of landscape ecology, which proves to be a young, but an interesting and very important trans-disciplinary science for the solution of environmental problems. Both the theoretical basis and practical application of landscape ecology are considered. Great value is attached to describe approaches and experiences from Germany and Central Europe, and to discuss them in an international context. The book is addressed to landscape planners, managers, conservationists and architects, to biologists and geographers, to colleges, universities, authorities, and to the general public being interested in ecological issues. Among the themes are e. g. the roots and the position of landscape ecology, problems of scale and dimension, landscape analysis, diagnosis, potentials, evaluation, change, prognosis, tools like remote sensing and information systems, spatial planning and nature conservation.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"The book focuses on the German, and European views of landscape ecology … . I am deeply impressed by the variety of the presented aspects and disciplines. … I will use the volume as a reference and as a dictionary. This book adequately communicates the wide spectrum of German landscape ecology … an extraordinary performance. … if there is nobody to give you this book, lend it from your library, it is worth reading. And of course, recommend it to your librarian." (Thomas Wohlgemuth, Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly, Vol. 33 (4), 2004)
