Definitions of Concepts and Principles

  • John A. C. Fortescue
Part of the Ecological Studies book series (ECOLSTUD, volume 35)


Two of Polynov’s contributions to landscape geochemistry were outlined briefly at the end of Chapter 2. This chapter is concerned with definitions of the seven concepts of the discipline of landscape geochemistry. In Part II, each concept is described in a separate chapter (Chapters 6–12.). At the end of Part II, relationships between the basics of the discipline and the four hierarchies that constitute the philosophy are treated in a series of four chapters (Chapters 13, 14, 15, and 16).
