This section reflects on the possible role of the discipline known as landscape ecology within the complex machine with regulates urban and regional planning and programming today. We therefore asked major protagonists in this discipline to contribute articles and essays and, more specifically, to examine the relationship between contributions in this area which regulate the need to maintain biodiversity and the ecological space which conserves it and the repercussions on planning instruments at different scales of intervention. Both the contributions from international (Canada, Holland, Brazil) and national experts, institutions and bodies (the universities of Aquila, Pavia, Urbino and Genoa and the Polytechnic of Milan and the Region of Lombardy) show how an ecological network can be used as a paradigm for sustainable development not only from an environmental viewpoint, but also from a settlement and social viewpoint.

Keywords: Ecological networks; urban planning; integrated planning
