Abstract An integrated approach to the landscape management requires an exact formulation of the concept of landscape and its structure. Nowadays, basically at least two main streams of the landscape ecology and thus of the concept of landscape might be identified: we may say the “hard”, i.e. geosystem-based concepts, and the “soft”, i.e. cultural-heritage, value and perception-based concepts of landscape. This division is not a ranking, just a differentiation.
Without any doubt a landscape type defined exactly, e.g. with relief dissection or soil depth, has a different normative effect than the characteristics of the beauty of a landscape part. It does not mean at all that the beauty and other similar values are not important indices of the landscape. The opposite is true: right because of their fuzzy character their implementation needs more diligence, in order not to lose them. Nevertheless, those different approaches to the landscape offer different possibilities for their implementation to legislation and to real planning processes. The geosystem approach became the basis for implementation of landscape ecological planning and eco-network planning in Slovakia. Recently, the cultural heritage concept is significantly supported by the European Landscape Convention.
Key words: landscape; geosystem; law; European Landscape Convention.
Introduction Theory and practice of landscape sciences decisively influence several basic concepts of sustainable development, as environmental protection, management of natural resources, nature conservation, landscape design and planning procedures, integrated watershed management, and other policies. This development requires an exact formulation - or reformulation - of the main object of our interest – the landscape, as well as its most exact formulation possible, but at the same time acceptable in the sphere of the policy, decision making, planning and projecting. The above mentioned problems, as well as the diversity of approaches, their recent changes (Wu, Hobbs, 2002, Nassauer, Santelmann, Scavia, Eds.
2007, Kienast, Wildi, Ghosh, Eds., 2007, Nassauer, Opdam, 2008, Mizgajski, Markuszewska Eds., 2010), even some kind of the “identity crisis” of the landscape ecology, which was according to Wu (2013) perceived at the turn of the new millennium - force us to reopen repeatedly theoretical questions on definition of the landscape and its implementation to real policies.
Diverse understanding of the landscape concept The concept of the landscape occurs on broad scale of different sciences. Nowadays, basically at least two main streams should be identified: we may say the “hard”, geosystembased concepts of the landscape, and the “soft”, cultural-heritage, “values” and perceptionbased ones. This division is not a ranking, just a differentiation. It is important that different approaches offer different possibilities for their implementation to legislation and to real planning processes. Without any doubt a landscape type defined exactly, e.g. by relief dissection, soil depth or a biocoenoses, has a different normative effect than the characteristics of the beauty of a landscape, which is much more subjective and changing e.g. according to 7 Halada, Ľ., Bača, A., Boltižiar, M. (eds.): Landscape and Landscape Ecology. Proceedings of the 17th International Symposium on Landscape Ecology the persons, angle of view, etc. The first approach to the landscape is represented mainly by geographers and “geographically-biased” landscape ecologists, the second one by a very broad group of different specialists from other sciences, like social scientists, architects and artists. This group cannot be defined in a simple way but all its members might be considered as friends and lovers of the landscape.
These differences between the approaches are obvious by mutual comparisons of definitions based on general system theory (Bertalanffy (1968), modified for geographical and landscape sciences by main representatives of the first group, such as Neef and others (Neef, 1967, Neef, E., Richter, H., Barsch, H., Haase, G., 1973), Chorley, Kennedy (1971), Preobrazhensky (Preobrazhensky, V.S., Minc, A.A., 1973), Sochava (1977), Krcho (1968, 1978), and the definition given e.g. by the European Landscape Convention (see below). Of course, the above stated does not mean at all, that the beauty and other similar characteristics
or values of the landscape are not important indices of the landscape. The opposite is true:
right because of their fuzzy character their implementation need more diligence, in order not to lose them in design and planning processes.
