This landmark event comes at a time of colossal challenges for nature conservation – with globalisation, climate change, and economic austerity just a few of the issues. As a part of the overview of the themes of the conference, Ian Rotherham will present a review of the ideas stimulated by the works of Frans Vera, the late Oliver Rackham, and of George Peterken in driving forwards our understanding of ‘Woods’, ‘Wood Meadows’ and ‘Wood Pastures’ in landscape evolution. The presentation will review the impact of Vera’s ideas and how these can fit into robust frameworks of ecology, and of ecological and social history. This will address issues of historical derivation and continuity in landscapes, and of ‘futurescapes’ and ‘Wilder Visions’ – understanding the past to inform the present and to guide the future.
