Title: D. McKenzie, C. Miller and D.A. Falk, eds. The Landscape Ecology of Fire [book review]

Author: Gustafson, Eric J.;

Date: 2012

Source: Landscape Ecology. 27: 925-926.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: In the Foreword of this volume is the statement that "landscape ecology is the 'glue' that holds ecosystem theory together and nowhere is that more evident than in the study of wildland fire ecology." The Landscape Ecology of Fire summarizes how landscape ecology has contributed to, and been formed by, the study of wildland fire, and focuses on new and emerging ideas about the landscape ecology of fire. Landscape ecology added a spatial and scaling component to the study of wildland fire that resolved many previously intractable problems. Nevertheless, as this volume describes, theoretical gaps remain that must be filled to advance towards a comprehensive landscape ecology of fire.
