- Abstract in English : The historical roots and the modern tasks of Landscape Architecture will be described briefly. Two aspects of current Landscape Architecture will be discussed in more detail:
- Geomorphology for Landscape Ecology, Landscape Planning and Design: Physiography and landscape ecology are important determinants for landscape planning and design. Examples are slope gradients as they relate to soil erosion, intensity of horizontal and vertical curvature of the relief, position of areas of relief in river basins and sub-watersheds, and their ecological relevance.
- Methodology of Landscape Planning and Design: Planning and design solutions can be assisted through flow diagrams that evaluate the impacts of various uses of the landscape.
