Title: Using expert knowledge in landscape ecology [Book review]

Author: Gustafson, Eric J.;

Date: 2013

Source: Landscape Ecology. 28: 365-366.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: This volume perfectly illustrates the truism—"we don't know what it is that we don't know." I have been a landscape ecologist for over 20 years, and have even used expert knowledge many times in my own research. Yet I learned something profoundly new in almost every chapter of this collection of primers and case studies focused on the use of expert knowledge in landscape ecology. The volume is comprised of contributed chapters featuring a nice variety of research questions, ecosystems and approaches, all from a landscape ecology perspective. The quality of the chapters is consistently high, and the explicit focus on the application of expert knowledge (EK) is the unifying thread. The volume reveals that this field is very young and without established protocols, and yet some critical advances have already been made.
