Land | Editor’s Choice Articles in 2020–2021 in the Section “Landscape Ecology”

Land (ISSN: 2073-445X, Impact Factor 3.905) launched the Section “Landscape Ecology” in November 2019. Prof. Dr. Benjamin Burkhard is currently serving as Editor-in-Chief of this Section.

The Section “Landscape Ecology” welcomes contributions concerning the dynamics of patterns and processes at landscape scales concerning any type of landscape, land use or land cover, including aquatic, coastal, and marine systems. Manuscripts can be theoretical, applied, or “state of the science” reviews but should explicitly address the spatial and/or temporal scale. Interdisciplinary manuscripts focusing on social–ecological systems, sustainability, or global change issues are particularly welcome, as are manuscripts from fields adjacent to landscape ecology, such as geography, macroecology, spatial science, and modeling.

We are pleased to present the Editor’s Choice Articles of Section “Landscape Ecology” in 2020 and 2021, a snapshot of some of the most exciting work from the Section.
