This book provides the practical basis for the use of remote sensing to accomplish landscape ecological projects, through the merging of theory and practice, with examples. This is a specialized application and both these topics have evolved rapidly in the past decade. This evolution is not in the previous edition, and indeed this update provides much new information and valuable ideas for the professional and assist in directing the training of new personnel. The new edition will feature a combination of landscape ecology metrics, quantitative field measurements, and geospatial analyses.

"Informed stewardship calls for the capabilities of landscape ecology. The Second Edition provides important outcomes derived from integrating landscape metrics, remote sensing, and GIS for modeling of ecosystems. The reader learns of advanced tools and their applicability in case studies on ecological services, continental scale computation of landscape metrics, and watershed modeling for restoration. These approaches are illustrative, informative and actionable at a variety of scales, and applied in contemporary decision-making and public engagement for ecological benefit."
- John Lyon, Fellow Member, American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing
"Dr. Lopez's research is pioneering. This book documents methods and results that highlight robust mechanisms that can be used to better understand the natural environment and the impacts (good and bad) of human alterations."
- Brenda L. Groskinsky, formerly with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and currently retired from federal service
