Introduction for living in agricultural landscapes: practice, heritage and identity

This is an introduction into a compilation of selection of papers presented in a special session Living in Agricultural Landscapes: Practice and Heritage organised by EUCALAND-(European Culture expressed in Agricultural Landscapes)-Network at the 24th session of PECSRL (The Permanent European Conference for the Study of the Rural Landscape) Living in Landscapes: Knowledge, Practice, Imagination held in Riga and Liepāja, Latvia from 23-27 August 2010. Agricultural landscapes that form considerable share of European countryside witness similar problems from Russia to France, from Iceland and Ireland to Hungary yet the conceptualisations of heritage, development paths of its legal framework etc. are different, although the wish to maintain identities is similar. A proposal for a typological classification of European agricultural landscapes is introduced to enhance common planning approach.
