Editorial Reviews


"An excellent resource for upper division undergraduates, graduate students, resource managers, and scientists in all fields of landscape ecology, biological conservation, and applied ecology." Choice

"Richard T.T. Forman's Land Mosaics has made a significant contribution to addressing this issue and documenting how the ecological view can and has been put into practice. This work is a comprehensive review and synthesis of landscape ecology. Its goal is to provide a framework for humans to be able to critically understand and use at an appropriate scale important ecological relationships with the land around them....Land Mosaics provides the most scholarly review of holling and Goldberg's "new priniciple" to date. It is an exceptional piece which scholars from a avriety of disciplines will find useful....Dr. Forman does exceptionally well in dveloping the foundations of regional ecology..." William W. Budd, Landscape and Urban Planning

"Land Mosaics is valuable for the research community in that it synthesizes work from many fields and from many geographic locations and ties them together with key concepts and ecological principles....The book is also valuable for the community of land managers/planners in that there is much sound advice for creating optimal spatial configurations that have a higher probability of being sustainable. I would especially recommend the last section of the book--the last three chapters on changing mosaics--as required reading for all involved with planning, management, or research on large land areas." Forest Science

"The discussion of animal flow configurations is especially insightful....Forman explains convincingly that we must understand such phenomena...if we are to plan in ways that will protect various species." Landscape

"...provides a good introduction as well as a scientific review of the new disciplines of landscape ecology. This is an appealing and highly readable text on this major emerging field." Journal of Environmental Quality

Book Description

Animals, water, wind, and people flow at different rates according to spatial patterns common to almost all landscapes and regions. This up-to-date synthesis explores the ecology of heterogeneous land areas, where natural processes and human activities interact in an ever changing mosaic.

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Tam Larroc on November 11, 2003
Format: Paperback
This is an introductory level text for those interested in landscape ecology. The authors do a nice job of defining jargon common to the field and provide some equations for various chapter subjects in chapter appendices. The references cited section of the book is comprehensive and useful. Personally, I found the appendices and the reference list at the end of the book to be more useful than the text itself.
