by E.M. Nicholson, C.B., Director-General of the Nature Conservancy

Until recently it was believed that a line could be drawn between artificial environments created by man and natural environments. Now ecologists are having to face the fact that man's impact on nature has been far greater than was once supposed, and so they are having to re-think ecology in terms of nature's relationships with man as the dominant animal.
