Abstract

To satisfy our primary needs, humans transform environments and utilise plants and animals in particular ways. In doing so there are necessarily consequences (negative and/or positive) for the individual areas, specimens, or creatures directly affected as well as potential impacts affecting particular species generally and wider eco-systems up to and including the Earth as a whole. Interacting in-and-with Nature means that humans have been and always will be implicated in the ongoing modification of Nature itself. That is, complex relationships and interdependencies – between Nature and Humans – continually reshape the terrain upon which and within which they emerge and exist. This is a simple but basic ecological proposition.
