Landscape Ecology and Conservation Biology

  • Vittorio Ingegnoli

Abstract

In dictionaries the word “naturalness” is defined as the quality and/or condition of what is natural, but conservationists generally define it as the absence of human artefacts or influence. This is again a preconceived contrast between man and nature, forgetting that man is part of nature. What should be discussed is the modality through which man administrates nature rather than the right to manage nature.
