1995

William Z. Lidicker Jr., editor

Book Default Image

This book explores the latest ideas about landscapes as they apply to mammalian ecology and conservation. The contributors examine the contributions of mammalian field studies and experimental model systems to landscape ecology, and then present data on the use of such experimental protocols. With its international perspective and its incisive coverage, this volume will be an essential resource for anyone concerned with mammalian and landscape ecology.

A milestone. W. Lidicker and L Hansson provide a very enlightening perspective on the origins of mammalian landscape ecology. Provides a concise overview of the current state of the science, and will be effective as an entry point into the literature. All of the chapters are well written and easy to read.
