This m</p><p>ay be because it </p><p>is used by </p><p>so many and for so m</p><p>any different purposes, </p><p>How</p><p>ever, O</p><p>lwig </p><p>(1993) argues </p><p>against the </p><p>elimination o</p><p>f such polyvalent words and their replacem</p><p>ent by supposedly m</p><p>ore neutral, univalent concepts. Still, w</p><p>hen a landscape is assessed for practical environm</p><p>ental projects or </p><p>planning, it is </p><p>the visual, rational, quantifiable param</p><p>eters that receive the m</p><p>ost attention. Therefore, there is a need for </p><p>a com</p><p>mon </p><p>arena and </p><p>a practical, </p><p>useful concept </p><p>for environm</p><p>ental studies where m</p><p>any different disciplines and levels o</p><p>f expertise are involved, and where the term</p><p>inology and technical language differ w</p><p>idely. T</p><p>here is some resistance tow</p><p>ards words and concepts that </p><p>are com</p><p>plex and </p><p>complicate </p><p>the com</p><p>partmentalization </p><p>of </p><p>thought. Often people think in term</p><p>s of opposites, at least in </p><p>western society. N</p><p>ature and culture are examples o</p><p>f such a dichotom</p><p>y. When 'natural' is perceived as pure, an ideal, that </p><p>humankind and its techniques have desecrated, then virgin </p><p>land or w</p><p>ilderness arc term</p><p>s used w</p><p>here hum</p><p>ans are not recognized as a part o</p><p>f nature and the environment (S</p><p>oper 1995, A</p><p>dmns &amp;</p><p> McS</p><p>hane 1996, Darier 1999). N</p><p>evertheless, changes in subsistence strategies, dem</p><p>ography or perception </p><p>have, through time, resulted in both intended and unintended </p><p>modification o</p><p>f the global environment (C</p><p>rumley 1994). A</p><p>n exam</p><p>ple from T</p><p>anzania is given by Schm</p><p>idt ( 1997), who has </p><p>shown </p><p>that cultural </p><p>perceptions have </p><p>affected landscape </p><p>managem</p><p>ent over </p><p>the last </p><p>2500 years </p><p>in the </p><p>Usam</p><p>bara M</p><p>ountains area. D</p><p>espite a widely accepted construction o</p><p>f a eo-evolving past, w</p><p>estern scicn</p></li><li><p>~ORSK G</p><p>EO</p><p>GR</p><p>AF</p><p>ISK</p><p> TID</p><p>SS</p><p>KR</p><p>IFT</p><p> 57 120031 </p><p>cially, for </p><p>example </p><p>by the </p><p>tourist industry, </p><p>but also </p><p>in guidelines for landscape assessm</p><p>ents, wh</p><p>ich often coincide </p><p>or overlap with visual im</p><p>pact assessment (e.g. C</p><p>ountryside C</p><p>omm</p><p>ission I YY I). A</p><p>cademics have discussed the concept </p><p>widely </p><p>and further </p><p>divided the </p><p>term </p><p>into subclasses </p><p>and categories, such as natural landscapes, cultural landscapes, political landscapes, m</p><p>ental landscapes, etc. How</p><p>ever, I will </p><p>argue that by breaking do</p><p>wn</p><p> into narrow com</p><p>partments one </p><p>of the few</p><p> concepts that actually describes a totality, where </p><p>all processes </p><p>-physical, </p><p>cultural, rational, </p><p>political and </p><p>mental -</p><p>are present, </p><p>we dim</p><p>inish o</p><p>ur chances o</p><p>f under-standing </p><p>the com</p><p>plex reality </p><p>that w</p><p>e try </p><p>to explain </p><p>and m</p><p>anage. L</p><p>andscape thus enco</p><p>mp</p><p>asses both the conceptual and the physical. </p><p>This is o</p><p>f course not a new idea. M</p><p>einig ( 1979, 21</p><p>8-2</p><p>19</p><p>) listed the key feature o</p><p>f J. B. Jack</p><p> son</p><p>'s idea of landscape as: </p><p>'landscape is </p><p>a unity </p><p>of </p><p>people and </p><p>env</p><p>iron</p><p>men</p><p>t w</p><p>hich opposes in its reality the false d</p><p>icho</p><p>tom</p><p>y o</p><p>f man and nature.' </p><p>Hi.igerstrand ( 1991) argues that in co</p><p>mp</p><p>arison</p><p> with hum</p><p>an ecology there is an </p><p>'old</p><p>er concept, wh</p><p>ich does not im</p><p>ply a division </p><p>between </p><p>natural an</p><p>d </p><p>human, </p><p>between </p><p>living and </p><p>manufactured.' T</p><p>his concept is landscape, understood as the m</p><p>ixture of everything that is present an</p><p>d spatially distributed </p><p>ov</p><p>er the surface of the earth, but it is absolutely not a static </p><p>concept. A</p><p>lthough the concept of en</p><p>viro</p><p>nm</p><p>ent has been defined b</p><p>y </p><p>the World B</p><p>ank (19</p><p>98</p><p>) as a unity of nature and culture, the </p><p>idea of 'lan</p><p>dscap</p><p>e' has a utility and flexibility that is easier to understand as an ev</p><p>eryd</p><p>ay reality than 'en</p><p>viro</p><p>nm</p><p>ent' (B</p><p>ruun 1998, B</p><p>ell 1999). Landscape is that part o</p><p>f the env</p><p>iron</p><p>men</p><p>t that is the h</p><p>um</p><p>an habitat, perceived an</p><p>d understood by us </p><p>through the medium</p><p> of o</p><p>ur perceptions. T</p><p>his aw</p><p>areness has m</p><p>any implications fo</p><p>r planners, designers and managers o</p><p>f landscape. </p><p>Landscape as form</p><p> an</p><p>d process </p><p>Cart S</p><p>auer ( 1925) defined 'lan</p><p>dscap</p><p>e' as an area made up o</p><p>f a distinct association o</p><p>f forms, both physical and cultural. H</p><p>e noted: </p><p>An inevitable difficulty w</p><p>ith a purely genetic morphology o</p><p>f relief form</p><p>s is that most o</p><p>f the actual relief features of the </p><p>earth are of very m</p><p>ixed origin. Behind the present form</p><p>s lie processal </p><p>associations, previous </p><p>or ancestral </p><p>forms, </p><p>and alm</p><p>ost inscrutable expressions of tim</p><p>e (Sauer 192.'i. ~~). </p><p>Later geographers (e.g. O</p><p>lsson 1994, W</p><p>idg</p><p>ren </p><p>1999) have recognized that geom</p><p>etric form d</p><p>oes not necessarily associ-</p><p>ate with one given process. W</p><p>idg</p><p>ren (1</p><p>99</p><p>9) has su</p><p>mm</p><p>arized </p><p>the form</p><p>-pro</p><p>cess discussion: landscape is, on</p><p> the one hand, a form</p><p> which at a given m</p><p>om</p><p>ent and in a given context can b</p><p>e represented in a landscape painting o</p><p>r recorded and inter-preted in satellite im</p><p>agery; on</p><p> the oth</p><p>er hand, landscapes can only be understood as continual processes, flow</p><p>s of energy </p><p>and matter, thoughts and actions. H</p><p>ence, landscape is form, </p><p>but it is also an o</p><p>ng</p><p>oin</p><p>g process, as </p><p>well as the result o</p><p>f previous processes. </p><p>Therefore </p><p>it can</p><p>no</p><p>t b</p><p>e treated exclu-sively as either process o</p><p>r form.
