DescriptionThe wildland–urban interface represents landscape change—changes brought about by urbanization, by shifts in forest management, and altered disturbance regimes, each having ecological, social, and economic ramifications. In this chapter, I will focus on some of the ecological ramifications associated with landscape change, primarily forest fragmentation and deforestation, resulting from urbanization. In particular, I will review forest fragmentation from a landscape and site perspective; examine the ecological aspects of edges, corridors, and roads; and discuss fragmentation in relation to human health issues as they pertain to the wildland–urban interface.
