Description :
Landscape sensitivity may be discussed in terms of the response of landscape systems to pertubation on different time and spatial scales. Although we are increasingly able to model the present, environmental management is dominantly about conserving inherited properties of landscapes : forests, soils, floodplains, coastlines. Landscape sensitivity for landscape management must, therefore, adress not only active, largely nonlinear, environmental systems, but also the mosaics and palimpsests that are the inheritance from past environments.
