Review

From the reviews:

"This book exhaustively covers current methods and techniques in landscape ecology. It is a compendium of contributed chapters from a list of well-recognized researchers … . It is specifically designed as a laboratory manual for university students … . It is likely to be the best currently available resource for anyone interested in learning about or teaching landscape ecology methods at the university level." (Robert G. Deon, Environmental Conservation, Vol. 30 (1), 2003)

"There is currently no lab manual of landscape ecology that covers the breadth of topics of this book. … This book is written for advanced undergraduate or graduate students (and their professors!). … User-friendly, step-by-step exercises are the heart of this book. … Each step in each exercise is laid out explicitly, making the exercises practically foolproof. … For a highly applied discipline like landscape ecology, a book like this is a valuable resource … ." (Nancy E. McIntyre, Ecology, Vol. 83 (7), 2002)

"The authors have recognised that despite the growth of landscape ecology courses, nearly every book is a textbook, lacking a hands-on-approach. This text is designed to fill that void by providing a collection of landscape ecology exercises … . A variety of approaches are presented: group discussions, thought problems, written exercises and modelling." (Bulletin of the British Ecological Society, Vol. 33 (3), 2002)

"Exploring current landscape issues and resource management, this book is organised into nine sections comprising 20 chapters … . Each of the chapters consists of practical advice and exercises to complete. … This guide provides essential information for students and practitioners of landscape ecology." (Landscape Design, July, 2002)

4.0 out of 5 stars Seems to be a good book, have not read it yet 9 Mar 2012
By Brian R. Wing - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I haven't read this book yet, though it seems to be a good one. I bought it for a college course, and it turns out that I may not have needed to buy it.
