Landscape is a heterogeneity region formed by a lot of ecosystems or mosaic constituted by different land uses. Landscape patterns are the concrete embodiment of landscape heterogeneity and the result of functions of various ecological processes. The formation of landscape patterns reflects different ecological processes; at the same time, landscape patterns affect landscape succession and variation processes in a certain degree. The relationship between spatial patterns, ecological processes and scales is the core research contents of landscape ecology. This article reviews the domestic and foreign research progress in research methods of landscape patterns and ecological processes and the relationship between landscape patterns and ecological processes. Finally the authors analyze the problems and insufficiency of the present studies, hot research spots, and the tendency of the relationship between landscape patterns and ecological processes in the future.
