As a result of the National Ecosystem Assessment in the UK, there is new demand for land management professionals with quantitative and integrative landscape capabilities, who will be required to cover topics from ecosystem services, biodiversity and agriculture. Worldwide, 90% of ecosystems are managed by humans and now international attention is focusing on landscape level strategies to address the integration between biodiversity and natural capital for the provision of ecosystem services.
As a response to these new market requirements Cranfield University believes an integrated landscape ecology approach is the way forward to understand the effects of landscape structure and dynamics on the conservation of biodiversity, provision of ecosystem services and sustainability of rural livelihoods. The use of new technological capabilities such as geospatial technologies and spatial models provide a strong quantitative and spatial background that combined with an integrated view of the environment will provide students with the opportunity to think across disciplines and offer integrated solutions to current environmental problems. The integrated view of the environment includes an understanding of ecological conservation and natural resource management issues in both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems.
