The seven different initiatives discussed in this book reflect that landscape-scale focus is an important and effective way to conserve and protect biological diversity. The comparative analysis of these seven cases shows that landscape-scale focus is a crucial method for the adoption of more protective policies and practices, and enables planners to adopt more comprehensive approaches to environmental problem-solving. This tool may also help coordination to form among different agencies and jurisdictions. As per the optimistic model of ecosystem-based management , an integrative scientific assessment can be put into practice with the help of landscape-scale focus, and that can ultimately make stakeholders and policymakers aware of the relationships among ecosystem elements and processes. Collaborative efforts of policymakers and stakeholders can formulate and implement innovative approaches and plans to environmental conservation and restoration. According to scientists, buffers between set-aside land and developed areas should be retained to ensure long-term biological effectiveness of the proposed reserves.

Keywords:   landscape-scale focus, conservation, biological diversity, ecosystem-based management, stakeholders, policymakers
