Abstract The subject of examination in landscape ecology covers landscapes of various spatial as well as temporal dimensions. Landscapes are complex, spatially and temporally multi-layered systems, which change and develop naturally but are also subject to anthropogenic changes owing to their multifunctional use. Landscape ecology models are an important instrument in establishing better access and understanding of the spatiotemporal behaviour of systems and processes. The recording of the structural function and dynamic of landscapes is closely linked to the inclusion of the variables space (structure) and time (dynamic). When examining precisely the variables of space, time and dynamic in system models, it nevertheless becomes apparent that in model approaches the implementation of these variables is treated very differently. The subject of this paper deals with issues of integrating the variables of space and time into models and observations of models for the landscape dynamic Furthermore, there is an overview of the current linking methods of space and time and the system model as well as new approaches in the creation and implementation of spatial landscape models.
