An analysis and synthesis of the ecology of heterogeneous land areas.


A state-of-the-art synthesis that explores the ecology of heterogeneous land areas, where natural processes and human activities spatially interact to produce a continually changing mosaic. The foundations of landscape and regional ecology are first introduced. Early chapters then explore the array of patch, corridor, and matrix types, plus movements and flows between adjacent elements, as the essential building blocks of land mosaics. Middle chapters fit these spatial elements together, and explore movements and flows through the resulting mosaics. Later chapters then explore the mosaics changing over time, including alternative pattern sequences in planning or managing landscapes or regions. Annotation c.
