Perspectives on landscapes

Edited by Elisabeth Conrad and Louis F Cassar

Xiii + 101 pages. 2010.

ISBN: 978-99957-812-0-0

This publication contributes towards an enhanced understanding and appreciation of landscapes, as an element of our identity and heritage. Landscapes bring together various elements of nature and culture, from both past and present, as they continue to evolve. It is precisely this dynamic quality that renders them a challenge for management efforts, which must seek to safeguard character, whilst allowing for inevitable change. The change is particularly pertinent to the Maltese Islands, where a high population density and small land area come together to render threats to landscapes even more urgent. This publication brings together contributions from various authors, combining specific perspectives concerning the Maltese Islands, with general concepts and tools for landscape protection, planning and management.
