    Gebundenes Buch

North and South America share similar human and ecological histories and, increasingly, economic and social linkages. As such, issues of ecosystem functions and disruptions form a common thread among these cultures. This volume synthesizes the perspectives of several disciplines, such as ecology, anthropology, economy, and conservation biology. The chief goal is to gain an understanding of how human and ecological processes interact to affect ecosystem functions and species in the Americas. Throughout the text the emphasis is placed on habitat fragmentation. At the same time, the book provides…mehr

Produktbeschreibung
North and South America share similar human and ecological histories and, increasingly, economic and social linkages. As such, issues of ecosystem functions and disruptions form a common thread among these cultures. This volume synthesizes the perspectives of several disciplines, such as ecology, anthropology, economy, and conservation biology. The chief goal is to gain an understanding of how human and ecological processes interact to affect ecosystem functions and species in the Americas. Throughout the text the emphasis is placed on habitat fragmentation. At the same time, the book provides an overview of current theory, methods, and approaches used in the analysis of ecosystem disruptions and fragmentation.

Rezensionen
Das Hauptanliegen des Buches - ein besseres Verständnis des Zusammenwirkens der menschlichen und ökologischen Prozesse in den amerikanischen Landschaften - ist auch für europäische Leser interessant. Der Einblick in die Probleme von Habitatverlust und Fragmentierung in fremden Landschaften schafft die Möglichkeit, ähnliche Probleme in der Heimat neu zu reflektieren. Ein Besonderes Plus sind die aktuellen und ausführlichen Literaturverzeichnisse, die dem interessierten Leser einen schnellen Einstieg in verschiedenste Aspekte der Fragmentierung erlauben.
