Landscape Learning

What is Landscape Ecology? How can it inform environmental policy and practice? What are its underlying concepts and theories? What methods and tools does it use and offer?

We define Landscape Ecology as the study of interactions, across space and time, between the structure and function of physical, biological and cultural components of landscapes; marine, freshwater, and on land.

Our Landscape Learning pages explore this definition in more detail, and suggest how you might already do and use Landscape Ecology in your own work. Below you'll find links to pages that specifically aim to provide accessible introductions to many aspects of Landscape Ecology so that you can learn more:
