New at HOORC's Library:patterns and processes in forest landscape

The changes in landscape ecology has influenced the way we think about forest ecosystems and how we can manage them. Instead of using homogeneity and stability as a basisi for our scientific and management models, as was the practice then, we now seek to understand forest systems in terms of heterogeneity and dynamics.This book is based on a conference held by the Landscape Ecology working Party of the IUFRO in Italy, 2006 and provides many valuable perspectives on the state of theory and application of landscape ecology in forests. The book is available in the HOORC Library.
