IALE works with Springer to produce this flagship journal in the rapidly developing fields of ecology and sustainability science of landscapes.
The journal focuses on highly inter- and transdisciplinary studies, aggregating expertise from biological, geophysical, and social sciences to explore the formation, dynamics and consequences of spatial heterogeneity in natural and human-dominated landscapes. The journal publishes new and innovative papers which seek to improve our understanding of the relationships between spatial patterns and ecological processes, and which provide guidance and solutions to help develop and maintain sustainable landscapes.
Landscape Ecology is a valuable resource for both researchers and practitioners in broad-scale ecology, biodiversity conservation, ecosystem management, and landscape planning and design, and is one of the leading journals across these fields.
All papers published in Landscape Ecology from its origin in 1987 through 1997 are now available for free downloading as PDF files.
