Abstract

Agricultural landscapes are valued with different sets of criteria by different actors and stakeholders, including farmers. Farmers’ attitudes and opinions towards small scale landscape change in different areas of Greece are presented. The areas are very different in terms of landscape and the driving forces of landscape change, with intense urban sprawl in Koropi urbanization in Mytilini and abandonment in Kentriko Zagori. The comparison of the attitudes, the evaluations and justifications farmers offer for landscape change is used to understand the dynamics of this change. Conflicts between the different roles are evident and the attitudes reveal an antithesis between deep attachment to the land and farming traditions on the one hand and market pressures on the other
