EVEN SEMESTER 2014/2015:


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)

Participants: Welcome for linked students from Study Program of Landscape Architecture (ARL), Natural Resources & Environmental Management (PSL), Agronomy (AGR), Regional Development (PWL), Rural Development (PWD),
