Abstract

A proposal for a different approach in the human use of nature in natural areas, agricultural areas and human-dominated areas, which could be beneficial to both man and nature, is described in this text. Changes include (1) ceasing management in natural areas, thereby creating emerging ecosystems, (2) managing nature in human-dominated areas, thereby reconciliating man and nature, and (3) sustainably using natural resources by sophistically creating new, sustainable socio-ecological systems in agricultural areas. The proposed changes in natural areas and human-dominated areas are based on a replacement of efforts from the former to the latter. In agricultural areas sustainability is the ultimate goal and should be approached by means of scientific research. Different examples of sustainable socio-ecological systems are discussed.
