From the reviews:
"The main topic of this volume are ecological principles for land use and land management ... . Through the arrangement and selection of the contributions the editors have compiled a coherent book that in a vivid and demonstrative way will make clear the importance of land use and land management for the function of ecological systems to a broad audience, from students of environmental sciences to decision makers and professional land-use planners." (Rainer Waldhardt, Basic and Applied Ecology, Vol. 5 (4), 2004)
"This volume applies ecological principles and guidelines to understand past and current land use and land management; and more importantly, endeavours to promote more ecologically sound approaches to future land use and management decisions. ... The intended audience is broad and multidisciplinary, from undergraduate and graduate level courses in environmental studies to professional land use planners." (Ethology, Ecology & Evolution, Vol. 14 (1), 2002)
