On Soils, Food, Energy, but not Sustainability

A growing body of examples illustrates how past cultures already have transformed landscape resources and our environmental legacy to a degree that reminds on disputes about the human role in the Anthropocene. An example of soilscape and topographic landscape change through millennial-scale cultivation serves to challenge our understanding of the co-evolutionary trajectories of societal and environmental development. Additional remarks refer to how this feeds into current teaching and research activities.
