Contents Notes
1. Introduction to landscape ecology -- 2. Theories and models incorporated in the landscape ecology framework -- 3. Scaling patterns and processes across landscapes -- 4. Emerging processes in the landscape -- 5. Emerging patterns in the landscape -- 6. Principles of landscape dynamics -- 7. Principles for landscape conservation, management and design -- 8. Methods in landscape ecology. "Landscape ecology is an integrative and multi-disciplinary science and "Principles and Methods in Landscape Ecology" reconciles the geological, botanical, zoological and human perspectives. In particular new paradigms and theories like percolation, metapopulation, hierarchies, source-sink models, have been integrated, in this last edition, with the recent theories on bio-complexity, information and cognitive sciences. Methods for studying landscape ecology are covered including spatial geometry models and remote sensing in order to create confidence toward techniques and approaches that require a high experience and long-time dedication."--Publisher's web site.
