Entropy and the second law of thermodynamics are the central organizing principles of nature, but the ideas and implications of the second law are still poorly developed in landscape ecology, despite a large recent upsurge in interest in the topic. The purpose of this second Special Issue on “Entropy in Landscape Ecology” in Entropy is to continue to build on the momentum we created in the first Special Issue to advance thermodynamic research in landscape ecology. The central goal is to bring together current research on applications of thermodynamics in landscape ecology, to consolidate current knowledge and identify key areas for future research. Formalizing the connections between entropy and ecology are still in an early stage, and this Special Issue will contain papers that address several centrally important ideas and provide seminal work that will be a foundation for the future development of ecological and evolutionary thermodynamics.
