ARL 621 LANDSCAPE ECOLOGY – 3(3-0): This subject concerns with ecological principles and concepts in the landscape, which is emphasized on landscape structure, landscape function, landscape dynamic and its heterogeneity. It is also concern with landscape conservation-management, and the methodology in landscape ecology as well (Hadi Susilo Arifin, Wahyu Q. Mugnisyah, and Syartinilia Wijaya)
