Human well-being, natural landscapes and wildlife in urban areas. A review (ENS22)

This 1994 paper explores the issue that much conservation work is directed by objective scientific criteria such as the maintenance of biodiversity. However, the majority of popular activity in the UK is fuelled by an appreciation that people value wildlife and in some way benefit from its presence or continued existance. Habitats may be evaluated partly on their ‘intrinsic appeal’, recognising that scientific objectivity alone is not sufficient grounds for the selection of sites to protect.
