Biodiversity conservation requires an understanding of the extent to which a landscape can contribute to species life-cycle. Conceived as a dynamic mosaic of spatial units with different properties, landscape is a very relevant scale for dealing with biodiversity issues. This paper aims at analysing the relationships and overlapping between this geography and landscape ecology as two scientific fields focusing strongly on landscape scale. Landscape ecology can be an useful neutral institutional place for interdisciplinary studies with inputs from separated scientific fields focusing commonly on landscape. Lastly, within interdisciplinary researches in landscape ecology, geography can bring the necessary elements for an integrated analysis of human and ecological processes involved in landscape dynamics.
