When people think of the English landscape they think of rolling green countryside, of fields, and hedgerows, of wildflowers, and of small farms. But to what extent do these images reflect reality? This lushly illlustrated volume traces the development of the English landscape from earliest times to the present day. A group of distinguished scientists and historians give thier views on all aspects of the shaping of the land, millions of years ago to the effects of towns and industry; from ancient woodland, hedges, and flowers, to the threat posed by modern agriculture and forestry.

The Cultural Landscape - Past, Present and Future considers different aspects of man's intervention with natural vegetation and the landscape resulting from a long equilibrium of co-existence. These landscapes are not stable, and the recent and ever accelerating changes in technology and life-style have increasingly affected many ancient landscapes, as old land-use practices are abandoned and traditions forgotten. The papers in this book describe and trace the development of cultural landscapes in different climatic and biogeographical regions in Europe. Remnants of traditional land-use still remaining are described, particularly from Western Norway, where traditions have lingered because the rugged topography of the region is inimicable to high-technology. Each chapter is by an expert in the field. The topics cover the documentation of present cultural landscapes, their maintenance and restoration, and the history of the development of cultural landscapes from the Stone Age onwards, linking the intensity of landscape utilization with population dynamics and technological attainments. The disciplines involved include vegetation science, vegetation history, ecology, palaeoecology, archaeology, sociology, geography and history.

For an undergraduate wildlife management course at both the introductory and advanced level; assumes some background knowledge in ecology.

Establishing the framework for effective management, the book is highly adaptable, lending itself easily to all introductory, mid- or advanced-level classes in wildlife management where instructors can customize and/or build upon topics to suit their particular course needs. Clear and straightforward, it is flexible enough to be used alone, as a “foundation” text supplemented by outside sources, for a refresher course, or simply as a reference text for basic principles.
