This book is the result of three symposia of the Dutch Society for Landscape Ecology (Werkgemeenschap voor Landschapsecologisch Onderzoek) about
• the Dutch National Ecological Network
• Urban ecology
• and Civil infrastructure.
The three topics - among others - show important contexts in which landscape ecologists do their research and apply their knowledge and skills.
The book focuses on urbanisation, intensive land use and water management as characteristic features of the Netherlands and therefore presents an important view on landscape ecology in the Dutch context.
