Integrating Landscape Ecology into Natural Resource Management
Edited by Jianguo Liu, William W. Taylor
Cambridge University Press
The rapidly increasing global population has dramatically increased the demands for
natural resources and has caused significant changes in quantity and quality of natural
resources. To achieve sustainable resource management, it is essential to obtain insightful
guidance from emerging disciplines such as landscape ecology. This text addresses the links
between landscape ecology and natural resource management. These links are discussed in
the context of various landscape types, a diverse set of resources and a wide range of
management issues. A large number of landscape ecology concepts, principles and methods
are introduced. Critical reviews of past management practices and a number of case
studies are presented. This text provides many guidelines for managing natural resources
from a landscape perspective and offers useful suggestions for landscape ecologists to
carry out research relevant to natural resource management. In addition, it will be an ideal
supplemental text for graduate and advanced undergraduate ecology courses.
