Capitalizing on forty years of intensive ecological studies, this anthology presents a collection of widely dispersed major publications on theoretical and practical Mediterranean, global environmental and landscape issues. These range from Mediterranean ecosystems and vegetation types in California and Israel, to the significance of fire in the evolution of cultural Mediterranean landscapes in the Pleistocene and Early Holocene with special reference to Mt. Carmel; and from the development of Tanzania Masailand, a sociological and ecological challenge to multifunctional, self-organizing biosphere landscapes and the future of our Total Human Ecosystem. Each chapter features a comprehensive study of ecological and landscape issues, synthesized in the introduction, and woven with autobiographical experiences. The concluding chapter calls for a transdisciplinary shift in all environmental scientific fields and particularly in landscape and restoration ecology, to cope with the complex, closely interwoven ecological, socio-economical, political and cultural crises facing human society during the present crucial transition from the industrial to the post-industrial, global information age. Updating and broadening the scope of the groundbreaking Springer book on Landscape Theory and Applications by the author and Lieberman (1994), this is a unique transdisciplinary attempt based on advanced systems complexity theories, which link the natural and human sciences. It will be of value for all those dealing with land and landscape study in the broadest sense as academic scientists, researchers and scholars, professionals and practitioners and students.

“This anthology is a testament to the vitality of Educational Linguistics and its transdisciplinary, problem-posing approach. With chapters ranging from the ethnopoetics of oral narrative to the use of eye-tracking technology to study recasts in CMC, this collection extends the boundaries of educational linguistics in significant, interesting, and innovative ways. In so doing, it will inspire much conversation about where this growing field is heading in the decades to come.” Professor Diane Larsen-Freeman, University of Michigan, USA “This edited collection provides us with a unique contribution as it demonstrates the applicability of a varied repertoire of innovative research methods to diverse language learning programs.” Professor Elana Shohamy, Tel Aviv University, Israel “This exciting collection includes original analyses of communicative actions and interactions in multiple international and multimodal settings to illustrate the promise of educational linguistics. A must-read for all those curious about contemporary applied linguistic scholarship and its pedagogical relevance.” Professor Mary McGroarty, Northern Arizona University, USA “Contributors to this volume have been in the vanguard of a bold, transdisciplinary movement that has re-tuned and reinvigorated the field of educational linguistics in ways that are uniquely suited to contemporary research on language in education. The chapters make challenging new research-theory-policy-practice connections and draw on cutting edge research—a compelling read for both new and established researchers.” Professor Marilyn Martin-Jones, University of Birmingham, UK
