Description :
Landscape sensitivity is expressed as the ratio of the change in a system to the change in a landscape component. The larger the ratio, the greater the sensitivity. An array of drivers of landscape change is reviewed, but there is seen to be little benefit in separating natural changes from human-induced changes. Changes in the systems themselves are reviewed, including the increasing evidence for 2 or more system states being possible.
