シンポジウム S08-4 (Lecture in Symposium/Workshop)
Patterns of landscape (seascape) in Asian countries are more heterogeneous and complicated in shape and size comparing that of EU and America. Moreover, process of patchiness and land fragmentation is strongly related to human impact (esp. Feng-shui theory). Anthropogenic pattern and process on landscape had been created traditional cultural landscape. Understanding of landscape is deeply concerned with traditional knowledge and indigenous knowledge. These biological-cultural linkages are deeply embedded in pattern and process during landscape development. Cultural landscape (seascape) is reflecting the interaction between human impact (human history and land use) and natural disturbance on land system. Socioeconomic reasons are important driving force to landscape dynamics; and biological resource use are influencing to create typical cultural landscape. Cultural landscape, therefore, is not stable, and it is developing and differentiating to stabilize. Environmental changes including climate change is also currently emerging issue of to landscape and seascape change. I believe that the development of Asian landscape ecology can contribute to development of sustainable human’s life as well as development of ecological theory.
