Agricultural Landscape as Philosophical-Ecological Phenomenon
Agricultural landscape in the context of interdisciplinary researches might be analyzed not only according to the system of diversified (ecological, social, economic and other) activities, which are traditionally designated for solving problems of rational land use as applied to the levels of administrative-territorial subdivision, specific conditions of business arrangement of production and use of natural resources, but also as a philosophical-ecological phenomenon. In addition to the necessity of accounting for physical properties and natural peculiarities of landscape, sectorial and species suitability of territories, aimed at satisfaction of key requirements of society, ensuring high efficiency of production and other types of activity, there is an actual demand for protection and reproduction of fertile, cultural-historical, landscape-aesthetic and other useful properties of lands. That is why geosciences, first of all, land use planning and control science, should introduce their own environmental philosophy of land use and consistently saturate (in proactive reaction to changes in natural environment, development of labor forces and industrial relations) theoretical and practical knowledge on Mother Earth with ecological content. Diversity of forms and methods of territorial planning shall correspond to variety of properties of land, agro-ecosystems and agro-landscapes.
