Discusses an approach to the study of ecological functions at the scale of landscapes and examines the powerful influence human beings have on the landscape, considering ecological questions that patterns of farming, forestry, suburbs, and cities raise for the landscape. Explores goals and strategies needed to bring human-dominated landscapes into intentional relationships with nature, and looks at specific examples of projects around the country. Includes b&w photos contrasting social landscapes with the natural world. For ecologists, ecosystem managers, land developers, watershed managers, and planners. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
