  • Analyses the fundamental processes of energy, water and nutrient cycling
  • Applicable in a wide range of contexts

This volume provides a synthesis of long-term ecological analyses in the Bornhöved Lake District as a representative landscape of northern Germany.

The emphasis is on the comprehensive assessment of matter and energy fluxes. These operate in and between the terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems and their biocoenotic structures and dynamics on the one hand, and on transdisciplinary landscape planning approaches on the other.

In each respect the development of novel hierarchical modeling approaches at various spatial and temporal scales is fundamental to the understanding of the structure and function of systems. It is also crucial to integrative resource management strategies.

The book’s comprehensive approach renders it highly useful in a wide variety of contexts, from the ecological to the climatological.
