Description

The landscape we see and live in is an important part or our everyday lives, be they urban or rural. Environmental concern has grown in recent years, as a result of public awareness of the detrimental impact industry, transport and tourism can have on the ecosystem. This book examines the role of the new technologies of geographical information systems and remote sensing as media for the study of landscape, as they provide tools of unprecedented power which collect, store, manipulate and analyze data so as to support and assist the decisions which the environmental scientist, ecologist, zoologist and botanist make.; "Landscape Ecology and Geographical Information Systems" is international in scope, provides an overview of operational applications, and offers experiences in the form of case studies of applications to vegetation, animals, and hydrology. The book is organized into four sections. It - provides an overview of the uses of GIS and RSS in landscape ecology; debates conceptual issues such applications throw up; considers analytical techniques and technical issues; and offers experiences in the form of Case Studies On Plant, Abiotic And Animal Landscape Ecology.
