The Palembang city has environmental problems, where the topographical conditions are relatively flat and tow in relation to the sea Level. At present, the relationship city-river has degraded the Palembang river ecosystem. There is a high 'ovulation growth, density urban development which is concentrated along the river and next to that lack of infrastructure conditions that produce negative consequences for the city environment likes flooding and inundation problems. River ecosystems is one particular type of natural ecosystems located within urban real. The processes of river ecosystem are performed within the river ecosystem s.-nacture that composed of two kinds of elements: the dynamic of hydrological conditions Ind the stable physical ones. Both of them present in the ecosystem in different sizes and zapes, which surround and contain the water body. The stable physical components of tole river ecosystems are the basis for identifying their dimensions and structures of river ecosystems. Using the classification of the topography, geomorphology, soils and land use, ?e'er ecosystems can be analyzed and understood easily in the spatial term. In this paper, the spatial approach landscape ecology, land unit concepts were applied to identified river ecosystems in Palembang. The stable physical components of !lembang river ecosystem were derived from both topographic map scaled 1:1000 and a - resolution digital elevation model (DI=M) by using Geographic Information Systems. As the result, the application of spatial approach will allow the identification and mapping of the components of ecosystems, finding how the topography, geologic, geomorphologic and Land Use characteristics interrelated and contribute to the spatial definition of the river ecosystems. Keywords : Landscape ecology, land unit concept, river ecosystem
