Landscape mosaics and ecological theory
- John A. Wiens
To most people, the term ‘landscape’ refers to the scenery of fields and forests, of mountains and streams. Gardeners apply the same term to their plantings of flower beds, shrubs, trees and lawns. Although the scales are different, the essence of ‘landscape’ in both cases is heterogeneity: more than a single element is present, and the more appealing landscapes are usually varied and spatially complex.
