    Special Issue on Landscape Ecology and Regional Planning


    Landscape ecology is the science of studying and improving relationships between ecological processes in the environment and particular ecosystems. This is done within a variety of landscape scales, development spatial patterns, and organizational levels of research and policy. Landscape ecology is widely used in land remediation, resource development, land use, natural protection, environmental management, regional planning, tourism development and urban landscape architecture. The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academics all over the world to promote, share and discuss various new issues and developments in modern landscape ecology and regional planning.
