writing essay (one page and a half) about this Question:
4. Describe four important conceptual differences between the classical (Levins-type) meta-population view and that embraced by landscape ecologists as they pertain to organisms and spatial pattern. For each, explain how incorporating a landscape ecology perspective enhances understanding of an organism’s response to landscape spatial structure. Provide examples to help illustrate your point. Even though the classical meta-population view was overly simplistic, why was it still valuable (what important contributions did it make to the discipline of landscape ecology)?
