Change is certain and a ubiquitous component of all landscapes. The convergence of spaces and cultures have given birth to unique landscapes. Ecological deficits are leading landscapes towards the edge. There is an urgent need to address the nature of these changes and offer solutions for adaptation, restoration and conservation. The book aims to address the urgent need to promote exchange of ideas, scientific results, and knowledge in the area of systems analysis and simulation in ecology. We need to redefine and rediscover the systems approach that would not only be multidisciplinary but also provide a comprehensive outlook of the functioning of the ecosystems in unexplored settings. This edited volume is a unique collection of papers which cover a gamut of topics researched extensively; ranging from impact of climate change on vulnerable ecosystems, culinary landscapes, colonial urban landscapes, credit landscapes to geostrategic landscapes to name a few. It offers a forward-looking synthesis, wherein it provides a platform for future research and multi-disciplinary analysis. Exploring unconventional connotations of landscapes, is what this book seeks to intellectually engage the readers in.
