About this series

Springer’s innovative Landscape Series is committed to publishing high quality manuscripts that approach the concept of landscape and land systems from a broad range of perspectives and disciplines. Encouraging contributions that are scientifically-grounded, solutions-oriented and introduce innovative concepts, the series attracts outstanding research from the natural and social sciences, and from the humanities and the arts. It also provides a leading forum for publications from interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary teams across the globe.

The Landscape Series particularly welcomes contributions around several globally significant areas for landscape research, which are anyhow non-exclusive:

  • Climate and global change impacts on landscapes and ecosystems including mitigation and adaptation strategies

  • Human Dimensions of Global Change

  • Biodiversity and ecosystem processes linked to ecosystems, landscapes and regions

  • Biogeography

  • Ecosystem and landscape services including mapping, assessment and modelling

  • Land System Science

  • Regional ecology (including bioregional theory & application)

  • Human-Environment Interactions and Social-Ecological Systems & Frameworks (SESF) - including theories, practice and modelling


Volumes in the series can be authored or edited works, cohesively connected around these and other related topics and tied to global or regional initiatives.  Ultimately, the Series aims to facilitate the application of landscape research and land system science to practice in a changing world, and to advance the contributions of landscape theory and research and land system science to the broader scholarly community.
