The eleventh in the Living World series of videos compatible with the AP Environmental Science curriculum is entitled Landscape Ecology. The program concludes discussion of the species-area effect by extending its implications to the study of island biogeography. These issues relate to the larger issue of landscape ecology- considering the geographical scale at which ecological phenomena are studied. It concludes by relating ecology to evolution through discussion of natural selection, mutation, fitness and genetic isolation. This and all videos in this series are open access and may be viewed via Arts and Academic Publishing.
