  • Description or summary of the book: Habitat loss and degradation that comes as a result of human activity is the single biggest threat to biodiversity in the world today. 'Habitat Fragmentation and Landscape Change' is a groundbreaking work that brings together a wealth of information from a wide range of sources to define the ecological problems caused by landscape change and to highlight the relationships among landscape change, habitat fragmentation, and biodiversity conservation. The book: synthesizes a large body of information from the scientific literature; considers key theoretical principles for examining and predicting effects; examines the range of effects that can arise; explores ways of mitigating impacts; reviews approaches to studying the problem; and discusses knowledge gaps and future areas for research and management. 'Habitat Fragmentation and Landscape Change' offers a unique mix of theoretical and practical information, outlining general principles and approaches and illustrating those principles with case studies from around the world.It represents a definitive overview and synthesis on the full range of topics that fall under the widely used but often vaguely defined term 'habitat fragmentation.'
