    schema:description "Animal, plants, water, wind, materials and people move through spatial patterns characteristic of virtually all landscapes and regions. This up-to-date synthesis explores the ecology of heterogeneous land areas, where natural processes and human activities spatially interact to produce an ever-changing mosaic. The subject is of enormous importance to today's society, and indeed for molding the future of areas surrounding each of us. The book bulges with ideas, principles, and applications for planning, conservation, design, management, sustainability and policy. Spatial solutions are provided for society's land-use objectives. This is an appealing and highly readable text on this major emerging field. Students and professionals alike will be drawn by the attractive and informative illustrations, the conceptual synthesis, the wide international perspective, and the range of topics and research covered."@en ;
