Abstract This final chapter is a personal reflection of the authors on this book. To find an answer to the question what the task is of landscape ecology, we split the question in two parts. The first past of the question is about science for society: what is the task of landscape ecology in a changing society and more specifically what is the role of landscape ecology between tasks delegated to single issue disciplines and how does this add to improving the quality of the Dutch landscape. The second part concerns science for science: which scientific challenges do we see for landscape ecology? The order of both questions characteristic for Dutch landscape ecology. Often social problems define landscape ecological research
