Reviews

"With summarizes her extensive experience in researching and teaching landscape ecology, accompanied by great artwork, in a well-written and clear textbook that will likely make it a frequently consulted source of information for landscape ecology courses." - Ezequiel González, Conservation Biology

"Beautifully produced, with high quality full color figures and images throughout, together with lively tables and boxes, chapter summary points and questions,Essentials is the first landscape ecology textbook I've seen that feels completely prepared to serve as the only assigned text for an introductory undergraduatecourse in landscape ecology...with this textbook, landscape ecology is now finally ready to become the mainstream university subject it was always meant to be." - Erle C. Ellis, Landscape Ecology
