Landscape issues are of interest in many disciplines, but they are seldom seen as an opportunity for inter- or transdisciplinary cooperation. This limits the ability to account for real world complexity. Bridging human and natural sciences intends to foster and coordinate communication about landscape-related issues-within academia and between science and society. The collection of papers in this special issue and the recommendations for future research are selected from the conference "Multifunctional Landscapes-Interdisciplinary Approaches to Landscape Research and Management" in Roskilde, Denmark, 2000. The contributions all bear evidence of an integrating approach to landscape research, bridging human and natural sciences. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
