Special Issue "The Role of Landscape Perspective for Environmental Management" in Sustainability

Dear Colleagues,

It has been recognized that ecosystems and landscapes are the two main spatial units in ecological research, though their concepts often remain vague and overlap when it comes to environmental management purposes. However, the landscape perspective seems more appropriate when dealing with sustainable resource management. Therefore, this Special Issue aims at conceptualizing and discussing the effects of landscape composition and configuration on the space lived, perceived, and managed by humans, with specific reference to the provision of landscape services, taking into account the possible synergies and trade-offs among the provision of services as well as the appropriate spatiotemporal scales. The present Special Issue aims to gather a series of conceptual and empirical manuscripts highlighting that the landscape perspective represents an added value in managing natural resources and enhancing human wellbeing. Papers selected for this Special Issue will be subject to a rigorous peer review procedure with the aim of a rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments, and applications.
