《景观与城市规划》是一本旨在提高景观学的概念化、科学化和应用化理解,推动景观变化的具有可持续性
解决方案的国际性期刊。景观是空间和时间维度可变的可视一体化社会生态系统,能够表现出被人类感知和
重视的、美的、自然的从及文化的特质,鼓励人们采取能够带来景观变化的行为。自然界中的景观正在日趋
城市化,并在当地乃至全球范围内呈现出对于变化的生态和文化敏感性。因此,人们需要通过多元化的学科
和视角来认识景观并对社会和生态价值观进行调整,从而确保景观的可持续发展。与规划和设计相关的景观
学能够推动人与自然的和谐共生与自然提供相互支持的结果, 这正是本刊创办的前提。
景观学将景观生态和城市生态与其他学科和跨学科领域结合起来,以识别景观变化范式,了解影响景观变化
的社会生态过程。景观规划将景观学、城市和地区规划、景观和生态工程以及其他相关实践性领域结合起来,
以确认问题并分析、优化整合和评估景观变化所需的替代方案。景观设计提供计划、设计、管理规定、政策
和其他影响景观变化的活动以及造型设计产品。在景观规划和设计的过程中,会生成新的证据模式和进一步
的研究假设,这在提供与景观学整体联系的同时,还将鼓励跨学科合作,从而建立健全的知识和解决问题的
能力。
Landscape and Urban Planning is an international journal aimed at advancing conceptual,
scientific, and applied understandings of landscape to promote sustainable solutions for
landscape change. Landscapes are visible and integrative social-ecological systems with varied
spatial and temporal dimensions. They have expressive aesthetic, natural, and cultural qualities
that are perceived and valued by people in multiple ways and invite actions resulting in landscape
change. Landscapes are increasingly urban in nature and ecologically and culturally sensitive
to changes at local through global scales. Multiple disciplines and perspectives are required
to understand landscapes and align social and ecological values to ensure the sustainability of
landscapes. The journal is based on the premise that landscape science linked to planning and
design can provide mutually supportive outcomes for people and nature.
Landscape science brings landscape ecology and urban ecology together with other disciplines
and cross-disciplinary fields to identify patterns and understand social-ecological processes
influencing landscape change. Landscape planning blends landscape architecture, urban and
regional planning, landscape and ecological engineering, and other practice-oriented fields to
identify problems and analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating desirable alternatives for landscape
change. Landscape design brings plans, designs, management prescriptions, policies and
other activities and form-giving products to prompt landscape change. The implementation of
landscape planning and design also generates new patterns of evidence and hypotheses for
further research, providing an integral linkage with landscape science and encouraging transdisciplinary
collaborations to build robust knowledge and problem solving capacity.
