    In commemoration of the journal's 40th anniversary, the co-editor explores themes and trends covered by Landscape and Urban Planning and its parent journals through a qualitative comparison of co-occurrence term maps generated from the text corpora of its abstracts across the four decadal periods of publication.Cluster maps generated from the VOSviewer program reveal a coalescence of concepts for the last two decades along three knowledge domains: human dimensions, landscape analysis and planning, and urban ecology. Citation impact "heat maps" offer additional clues about emerging and high-impact topics. The editor assesses these findings with respect to the journal's aims and scope and offers some thoughts on future directions for research.
