Landscape changes represent an extremely wide as well as very important and topical issue in landscape sciences. The number of papers in scientific journals that focus on the topic of landscape changes has been increasing explosively during the last two decades . Among many conferences, workshops and seminars dealing with the topic of landscape changes, the seminar Landscape change and its ecological consequences in Europe held in Tilburg in 1995, from which the important report on the state of land use and landscape change in Europe in the 1990s was published (Jongman), should be mentioned. The importance of recent landscape changes and their consequences are further discussed in the monograph edited by Mander and Jongman . The international seminar organised in Norwegian Tromso in June 2006 has a concise title: Landscape Change: Learning from the past – Visions for the future.
