Sustainable development and rural policies have pursued strategies where farming has been often regarded as a factor deteriorating the ecosystem. But the current economic, social and environmental problems of the Earth probably call for examples of a positive integration between human society and nature. This research work presents more than a hundred case studies where the historical relationships between man and nature have generated, not deterioration, but cultural, environmental, social and economic values. The results show that is not only the economic face of globalization that is negatively affecting the landscape, but also inappropriate environmental policies. The CBD-UNESCO program on biocultural diversity, the FAO Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems and several projects of the International Union of Forest Research Organizations, as well as European rural policies acknowledge the importance of cultural values associated to landscape. This research intends to support these efforts.

This major book explores commons, lands and rights of usage in common, traditional and customary practices, and the cultural nature of ‘landscapes’. Importantly, it addresses now critical matters of ‘cultural severance’ and largely unrecognized impacts on biodiversity and human societies, and implications for conservation, sustainability, and local economies. The book takes major case studies and perspectives from around the world, to address contemporary issues and challenges from historical and ecological perspectives. The book developed from major international conferences and collaborations over around fifteen years, culminating ‘The End of Tradition?’ in Sheffield, UK, 2010. The chapters are from individuals who are both academic researchers and practitioners. These ideas are now influencing bodies like the EU, UNESCO, and FAO, with recognition by major organisations and stakeholders, of the critical state of the environment consequent on cultural severance.

This volume collects the best scientific contribution presented in the 3rd World Conference on Terraced Landscapes held in Italy from 6th to 15th October 2016, offering a deep and multifaceted insight into the remarkable heritage of terraced landscapes in Italy, in Europe and in the World (America, Asia, Australia). It consists of 2 parts: a geographical overview on some of the most important terraced systems in the world (1st part), and a multidisciplinary approach that aims to promote a multifunctional vision of terraces, underlining how these landscapes meet different needs: cultural and historical values, environmental and hydrogeological functions, quality and variety of food, community empowerment and sustainable development (2nd part). The volume offers a great overview on strengths, weaknesses, functions and strategies for terraced landscapes all over the world, summarizing in a final manifest the guidelines to provide a future for these landscapes as natural and cultural heritage.

The book collects a selection of the papers presented at the meeting held in the context of the Joint Programme on the Links between Biological and Cultural Diversity (JP-BiCuD). Recognizing the inextricable link between biological and cultural diversity, the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (SCBD) joined forces, and in 2010 launched the Joint Programme on the Links between Biological and Cultural Diversity (JP-BiCuD). The first meeting for the implementation of the JP-BiCuD was held in Florence (Italy) in April 2014 and produced the UNESCO-sCBD Florence Declaration, which highlights the concept of biocultural diversity. The European rural territory is predominantly a biocultural, multi-functional landscape, providing a crucial and effective space for integration of biological and cultural diversity, suggesting the need to revise some of the current strategies for the assessment and management of biodiversity.

This beautifully illustrated, elegant synthesis of current research and interpretation of European and North American landscape use is the most comprehensive volume available in the field. Much more than an up-to-date overview, the book offers a treatment of cultural, social, political, technological, and philosophical issues as they influence landscape history, including an examination of the environmental impact of human activity. In addition, it closely traces the development of the discipline and profession of landscape architecture. Drawn from the latest literature and documentation, it also reflects the authors many years of field observation and analysis. The authors begin by taking you through European and neighboring landscapes, including the Near East and North Africa. They track the development of human activity through early settlement, agriculturalization, industrialization, and the modern period. Next you'll explore North American land use and landscape architecture history, beginning with the influence of Native American cultures. Particular attention is paid to the impact of Euro-American attitudes and practices upon a landscape with limited human alterations to natural systems. You'll also learn about the emergence of the profession of landscape architecture from related disciplines in the mid-nineteenth century. Significant cultural influences, social trends, individuals, sites, and landscape regions in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico are all fully treated. Throughout, the book emphasizes the multicultural experience of landscape. It also brings you a more thorough discussion of the American landscape than any other work of its kind. Other up-to-the-minute topics includeecology, conservation, and environmental impact; a geographic context for design and planning; the relationship of values to land use; pre-Columbian landscape, design and planning; historic preservation; and environmental art. In addition, the book examines the role of six key issues in human interaction with the environment; the relationship of people to the natural environment; the effect of technology; human values concerning urban, rural, and natural landscapes; the symbolism of landscape; the social role of design and the role of aesthetics in land planning and design. Containing useful chapter summaries and bibliographies, this is the ideal introductory text for undergraduate and graduate students of landscape architecture and related studies. Landscape architects, architects, and planners should also read it in order to explore historical trends in social, cultural, and environmental contexts, and to better understand landscape architecture as a distinctive discipline.
