The Assessment and Management of Wildlife Areas
‘Biology is an ‘unrestricted’ science...and its phenomena are of a complexity which has severely tested scientific method. Biologists, in fact, have been among the pioneers in establishing ways of thinking in terms of wholes, and it was a biologist, Ludwig von Bertalanffy, who suggested generalising this thinking to refer to any kind of whole, not simply to biological systems.’ (Checkland, 1981).
