A new book by Dr. Robert Scheller, Professor of Landscape Ecology at North Carolina State University (NCSU), explores how human activities shape our landscape and the unique effects of these processes. The author also discusses how to address the negative impacts of anthropogenic drivers of landscape change, using landscape trajectories to guide the selection of an appropriate course of action.
Dr. Scheller includes genetic strategies as an essential tool for managing landscapes. He also analyses the risks of inaction caused by the fear of taking action under uncertain circumstances and other barriers to managing landscapes for change, such as culture and financial resources.
