This thesis asserts that agriculture represents a promising venue for collaboration between landscape architects and ecologists. It focuses on defining the relationship between landscape architecture, agriculture, and ecology through historical analysis and an exploration of ecological design models employed by both landscape architects and ecologists. These ecological design models are then used as a foundation for exploring how landscape architects and ecologists might collaborate in order to design sustainable ecological agricultural systems.
