Description :
This paper explores the commonly negative human reaction to environmental change. First, it assesses landscape change, defined specifically as the modification of land cover characteristics in the United States over the last couple of decades. Second, the paper describes global change, the human modification of major natural processes, again largely over the previous several decades. Third, the paper portrays the writing of Texas naturalist Roy Bedichek as a more positive human response to landscape and global change.
