Zev Naveh was one of the founders of landscape ecology as a major scientific field and a prominent researcher of Mediterranean ecology.
Zev, who started his career as a Shepard in the Galilee Mountains, became a world renowned scientist. His holistic view of nature was ahead of his time, and his articles discuss subjects such as biodiversity and conservation – two decades before these concepts became popular.
Zev did not live in an ‘ivory tower’, he was involved in numerous social and environmental initiatives, and particularly in promoting environmental education.
This site hosts most of the scientific contributions of Zev Naveh, during more than fifty years of a productive career.
