Abstract

This paper starts by examining the changes that take place in the Scottish landscape and the factors that are responsible for these changes (natural disturbances, such as climate change and fire; man-made disturbances, such as sheep grazing and deforestation). How rapidly and over what spatial scales these changes take place is considered, and then the interactions between the different factors that cause change are addressed. How this can accelerate changes and so increase landscape sensitivity is considered. Lastly, whether the sensitivity of the Scottish landscape is likely to increase or decrease under predicted climate change scenarios is briefly discussed
