New Zealand Landscape Excerpt :

New Zealand Landscape: Behind the Scene tells the story of New Zealand through the subject of geomorphology, a branch of earth science at the interface of geology and geography. Geomorphology is informally described as the ‘science of scenery’, and as with every science, ideas evolve as the research frontier advances. Users will find an early 21st century interpretation of the New Zealand landscape, an interpretation that rests on, and draws from, a rich foundation of ideas bequeathed by predecessors who have had the privilege of exploring, researching, and enjoying this corner of the Pacific. Tells a geological and geographical story with questions that are addressed and answered in the course of the book Written in an accessible style for both researchers and students Features full-color photos of the beautiful New Zealand landscape

Landscape and Quaternary Environmental Change in New Zealand Excerpt :

This book brings together an overview of the recent geological history, active earth and biological processes and human settlement of New Zealand. Topics covered include the very active neotectonic and volcanic setting. Mountain geomorphic processes are examined and new ideas about landsliding are highlighted. The exceptional sedimentary archives of the Whanganui Basin are also presented. As one of two land masses that extend into the southern mid-latitudes, New Zealand is ideally located to investigate changes in Southern Ocean climate. Related to this, mountain glaciation in New Zealand is a focus in global climate change debates. New Zealand also has a unique biota due to its long isolation and is the last major land mass to be settled by people. Advances in DNA technologies have revolutionised our understanding of the histories and processes involved. The book provides a comprehensive review of existing work and highlights new ideas and major debates across all these fields.

New Zealand Excerpt :

NEW ZEALAND: EYE ON THE LANDSCAPE is a new book of high-quality landscape photography aimed at the top end of the New Zealand pictorial book market. The distinguishing feature of this book is that the images used will not be the work of one photographer, but rather a collection of the best images from a wide range of landscape photographers. The inspiration for this concept has been the extraordinary work that is exhibited by members of the Photographic Society of New Zealand, the umbrella organisation for a wide range of photographic groups. The majority of photographs created by their members, who range from professional, semi-professional to keen amateur, is hardly seen and never published. The best of it, however, is of the highest quality and often provides a fresh and original view of a much-photographed country. The book will follow a standard format, with a focus on all of the main areas visited by tourists. The selection will be undertaken by publisher Robbie Burton and photographer Craig Potton, one of the most experienced photoediting partnerships in the New Zealand publishing industry. NEW ZEALAND: EYE ON THE LANDSCAPE will be a fresh and original pictorial book, with the highest standard of photography and production.

Globalisation and Agricultural Landscapes Excerpt :

Whilst agricultural landscapes are products of the local ecosystem and community in which they are situated, they are becoming increasingly affected by the same global issues, and are converging under the dynamics of globalisation. Combining landscape ecological research and an examination of relevant public policy, this book investigates the dynamic relationship between agricultural landscapes and the global change processes, such as urbanisation, by which they are being transformed. Landscape change is analysed in the context of biophysical patterns, market dynamics, and specific public policy frameworks, through a series of case studies from different OECD countries spanning Europe, Asia Pacific and North America. Particular emphasis is placed upon the way that landscapes are changing under differing policies of agricultural subsidy including the EU Common Agricultural Policy. This is an ideal resource for graduate students and researchers in landscape ecology and agriculture as well as policy analysts working in the agricultural sector.

Landscape Paintings of New Zealand Excerpt :

With 135 paintings from early colonial art to the work of contemporary painters, this book is a must-have for every lover of New Zealand and its art. When Landscape Paintings of New Zealand A Journey from North To South was published in 2006 it was hailed by a reviewer thus: 'This is New Zealand art history made accessible, yet still full of scholarship and insight.' Gallery director Dr Fiona Ciaran wrote that 'the book is a cracker that has something for everyone' -concluding that is was 'simply a magnificent landmark in publishing itself'. And now this acclaimed book is back, with 32 new paintings joining the 103 of the original edition. It is studded with arresting works by well-known artists such as Colin McCahon, Peter Sidddell, Dick Frizzell, Doris Lusk, Rita Angus, John Gully, and many many more famous names from New Zealand art history. In addition, the book offers an opportunity for readers to acquaint themselves with lesser known (these days at least) painters such as Archibald Nicholl, Max Walker, Cedric Savage and Douglas MacDiarmid. With its biographical notes on each artist, extensive bibliography, fascinating insights into social history and art history, and with a beautiful new design and very high production values, this book is a must-have for every book shelf and coffee table. Indeed, in 2013 the Times Literary Supplement included it in its 'books of the year' list.

Landscape and Branding Excerpt :

Landscape and branding explores the way landscape is conceptualised, conceived, represented and designed by professionals in a brand-driven age. Landscape - incorporating tangible physical space as well as intangible concepts, narratives, images, and experiences of place - is constructed by a number of creative industries. This book tests the hypothesis that place branding, a powerful marketing and management practice, increasingly blurs the distinction between the promotion of landscape and its production in design terms. Place branding involves the strategic and systematic composition of single-minded, experiential and market-friendly place identities which are consistently communicated across various media, including physical space. How does this implicate or transform notions of place, nature, landscape experience, and the qualitative value of landscape itself? How does this affect the role of landscape architecture? To answer these questions, place branding theory and practice is critically examined alongside an in depth case study of one specific landscape - the Blue Mountains (Australia). Projects undertaken between 1995 and 2015, including a branding strategy for the region, media campaigns, television, cinema, and several landscape architectural works in the public and private domain are comparatively analysed, focusing on the discourse, conventions and values informing their production, and the landscape narratives they convey.

Linking Australia s Landscapes Excerpt :

Networks of land managed for conservation across different tenures have rapidly increased in number (and popularity) in Australia over the past two decades. These include iconic large-scale initiatives such as Gondwana Link, the Great Eastern Ranges Initiative, Habitat 141°, and the South Australian NatureLinks, as well as other, landscape-scale approaches such as Biosphere Reserves and Conservation Management Networks. Their aims have been multiple: to protect the integrity and resilience of many Australian ecosystems by maintaining and restoring large-scale natural landscapes and ecosystem processes; to lessen the impacts of fragmentation; to increase the connectivity of habitats to provide for species movement and adaptation as climate changes; and to build community support and involvement in conservation. This book draws out lessons from a variety of established and new connectivity conservation initiatives from around Australia, and is complemented by international examples. Chapters are written by leaders in the field of establishing and operating connectivity networks, as well as key ecological and social scientists and experts in governance. Linking Australia's Landscapes will be an important reference for policy makers, natural resource managers, scientists, and academics and tertiary students dealing with issues in landscape-scale conservation, ecology, conservation biology, environmental policy, planning and management, social sciences, regional development, governance and ecosystem services.
