This groundbreaking work connects the knowledge of system function developed in ecosystem ecology with landscape ecology's knowledge of spatial structure. The book elucidates the challenges faced by ecosystem scientists working in spatially heterogeneous systems, relevant conceptual approaches used in other disciplines and in different ecosystem types, and the importance of spatial heterogeneity in conservation resource management.

From the reviews:
"Ecosystems Function in Heterogeneous Landscapes is an edited volume from the 10th Cary conference held in 2003. ... This volume attempts to cover a lot of topics and will be particularly relevant to graduate students of Landscape Ecology trying to grasp some of the landscape to regional organizing frameworks that may provide fruitful avenues of research. It may also be helpful to researchers and managers ... ." (K. B. Pierce Jr., Landscape Ecology, Vol. 22, 2007)
