Toelichting (Engels) Connectivity was and still is a leading principle in the design of the National Ecological Network. Van Leeuwen, a Dutch ecologist, showed the importance of boundaries and environmental gradients for the diversity of species. De Jong explains some of his theoretical principles and stresses their importance for spatial design at different levels. Gradients suppose both connectedness and “unconnectedness” combined in selection as a steering principle. However, the ecological theory of Van Leeuwen hardly plays a role in pure landscape ecology research anymore. Stressing boundaries means less emphasis on adjacent areas to be characterized by target species asked for by contemporary policy. Van Leeuwen’s philosophy still is an important principle in landscape architecture
