From the reviews:

“This collection of papers stems from a 2011 meeting of the International Association for Landscape Ecology, held in Beijing. The book seems to highlight a tension in the new fields of sustainability and ecological landscape studies, in which a philosophical/cultural/local framework contrasts with technological/macro approaches. … Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, researchers/faculty, and professionals.” (S. Hammer, Choice, Vol. 51 (4), December, 2013)
