About this book

Soil quality is threatened by many human-induced activities, but can also be improved by good land management. In the relatively short history of mankind on earth, the landscape and soils of the world have been drastically modified from their 'natural' state. Landscapes altered by man's activities are termed 'Anthroscapes' which are inextricably linked to culture and history. The challenges for today's scientists are to devise and implement sustainable land management strategies in order to preserve the land for the benefit of future generations. Sustainable Land Management: Learning from the Past for the Future is a valuable compendium of the research experiences so far gained in studies of the context and concept of the 'Anthroscape' and highlights the potential future contributions of such research to sustainable development.

Media reviews

"This book provides a well-rounded summary of sustainable land management in relation to culture and history. [...] Sustainable Land Management [...] is a very good collection of presentations. The principles of sustainability and land management are readily explained through a variety of locations [...] which provides readers with clearly identifiable regions that they may live in or be familiar with. The editors provide ample discussion about Anthrscapes and this helps to engage readers to think more about the changing evolution of land management sustainability."
– Jeff Thurston, Sensors & Systems, August, 2011
