|Title:||The present and the past: Environmental services, biodiversity, metastable ecosystems, and the cultural categorisation of the landscape|
The aim of this talk is to look at the way we approach environmental and climatic alterations when conceptualising landscape in the present and in the past. I consider scientifically-based proxies of climatic alterations and environmental changes while at the same time trying to understand how the environment as a natural landscape is understood in the cultural contexts of the past and the resent. In particular I focus on issues of environmental services, biodiversity, metastable ecosystem, and the cultural categorisation of the landscape in Palaeolithic Europe and Jomon Japan.▲PAGE TOP
