Strengthening Landscape Ecology's Contribution to a Sustainable Environment [chapter]

Clive A. McAlpine, Leonie M. Seabrook, Tiffany H. Morrison, Jonathan R. Rhodes
2013 Landscape Ecology for Sustainable Environment and Culture  
These are: recognising the growing complexity of landscape sustainability problems; adopting a formal problem-solving framework to landscape sustainability problems; helping to bridge the implementation  ...  Landscape ecology has the capacity to help address these challenges by providing spatially-explicit solutions to landscape sustainability problems.  ...  Ultimately, solutions require reforming governance arrangements at all levels and transforming societal values (Fischer et al. 2012; Swaffield 2012) .  ...
