Eighteen peer-reviewed papers explore the latest information on theoretical and applied ecology, especially as it relates to characterizing environmental risks to wildlife and the requirements of environmental managers.
Until recently, many areas which have low to moderate levels of chemical contamination were subjected to intrusive remediation efforts; the consequence being substantial destruction of existing wildlife habitat and low potential for enhancing better quality habitat at the affected site. This new ASTM publication addresses these issues. Topics cover:
Applied discipline of landscape ecology
Approaches used to characterize wildlife habitat
Challenges regarding biological resources from a global corporate perspective
Theoretical aspects of landscape ecology
Population dynamics affected by landscape conditions
Tools and approaches used in assessing environmental risks over different temporal and spatial scales
Real-world applications of different tools and approaches.
Landscape Ecology and Wildlife Habitat Evaluation: Critical Information for Ecological Risk Assessment, Land-Use Management Activities, and Biodiversity Enhancement Practices
