Historical ecology and the study of landscapeCrumley, Carole L.
AbstractHistorical ecology is a practical framework for studying the management history of landscapes and how such knowledge can inform and help envision their durable futures. Combining evidence from the biological and physical sciences, the social sciences, and the humanities, historical ecology employs a broad spectrum of concepts and methods. The study of landscape of southwestern Burgundy (in central France) is an early example of this comprehensive approach to the combined study of human history with that of environments.
