An important guide to assessing and managing the environment
from a landscape perspective
Ecological relationships are nested within the landscape.
Identifying the relevant spatial and temporal scales is critical
for an effective understanding of ecological functions that human
societies depend upon. Moreover, human encroachment into natural
areas, or changes in climate, can alter spatial relationships,
which in turn can negatively affect vital plant and wildlife
patterns?and weaken economic structures needed to sustain
human societies. This book is the first to combine multiple
disciplines into one cohesive strategy to study these crucial
connections, and looks toward building a social paradigm that
embraces the dynamics of ecological systems. This book:
Integrates landscape ecology, environmental risk assessment,
valuation of ecological goods and services, and environmental
management decision processes into one single source
Includes chapters on quantitative measures, Bayesian
modeling,¿economic analysis, and sustainable landscapes
Covers marine, forest, agricultural, and pharmaceutical risk
Has a chapter on predicting climate change risk to
Has a companion ftp site with color graphics, animations, and
risk assessment tools
With material that is accessible across all knowledge levels,
Environmental Risk Assessment and Management from a Landscape
Perspective moves beyond looking solely at chemical
contaminants to diagnose environmental threats, and aims to
accomplish practical risk assessment in a manner that supports
long-term sustainable management.
