Landscape Ecology seeks new and innovative papers that improve our understanding of the relationship between patterns and processes explaining the spatial variation in landscapes at multiple scales as affected by natural causes and human society. Because landscape ecology is a broad interdisciplinary topic the journal is open to contributions that consider the landscape as the basis of integration of knowledge. Landscape research can be approached from natural or human sciences and deals with the abiotic biological ecological or cultural aspects of landscapes. Papers that deal with the effects of biogeography global change or social and economic factors altering land-use are especially desired. The applications of landscape ecology to nature conservation environmental management landscape planning and restoration are of interest. Empirical theoretical and methodological papers are desired if they adequately address relationships between ecological dynamics landscape heterogeneity and landscape change. Purely descriptive papers are discouraged unless they document important and relatively unknown landscape aspects. The journal emphasizes papers presenting results of original research but reviews of recent developments in the field of landscape ecology may also be considered. Special issues and articles devoted to specific themes will be considered by the editorial board.
