Loss of biodiversity, desertification, global warming, and other environmental issues have been increasingly recognized, which requires the advancement of environmental conservation and restoration from a global perspective. Although various world-wide scientific and engineering efforts, including in Asian countries, have contributed to ameliorating the environmental crisis, growing pressures of economic and industrial development in Asia necessitate much further efforts with a consideration of sustainable development of human society. In addition, climatic conditions in eastern Asia, such as the Asian monsoon climate, and their ecological communities are greatly diverged from those in the West. The investigation should then be conducted within a framework appropriate to these given conditions.


The international journal, Landscape and Ecological Engineering, will be published in the English language to meet its global responsibility in protecting and improving the environment unique to East Asia. The journal promotes the development of theoretical concepts in environmental conservation and restoration and taking the leadership in establishing effective techniques for their application. For truly useful research that provides practical solutions, it is essential to exchange information among a wide array of experts across multi-disciplinary fields and countries, and particularly coordinate between researchers and their activities. Landscape and Ecological Engineering will thus be published by a consortium of the East Asian societies that have exchanged information in science, engineering, and decision-making related to environmental conservation and restoration. The journal is not limited to specific disciplines and approaches but seeks manuscripts reporting research results with emphases of their application to solution of environmental problem and management. The journal invites contributions and subscriptions from as many scientists, engineers and managers as possible in a variety of disciplines.
