Abstract

This paper briefly explores the concept of landscape sensitivity from an ecological perspective by addressing the questions : what is landscape sensitivity, what are the mechanisms of change, and what can landscape change mean for the species living there ? In discussing the first question, the AA. note the difficulty of achieving a precise definition, though it is vegetation that largely gives landscapes their colour and texture. They explore the other three questions using examples and data from Scotland, mainly from the uplands
