    Polski wiejski krajobraz: więcej niż przyroda
    (Zakład Architektury Krajobrazu, Wydział Biologiczno-Rolniczy, Uniwersytet Rzeszowski, 2018) Bobiec, Andrzej
    Traditional rural landscapes have long been shaped by the subsistence farming adapted to local environmental conditions (climate, soils, topography, etc.), underpinned by traditional institutions (family, parish, communal councils, the rule of land heredity, etc.), and secured by the common system of values and norms. Such biocultural complexes were providing an intrinsic network of habitats interconnected by the traditional land multiple use systems. Securing relative dynamic stability throughout centuries, the rural landscapes have become a very efficient „time capsule‟ of Europe‟s terrestrial biodiversity. At the same time, they are a living memory, a tangible footprint of the past generations, and thus, a place where a contemporary man can understand his ancestors, and rediscover the truth of himself. Alas, the progressing urbanization of societies decouples them from the landscapes of their origin. Urban dwellers eagerly get involved in conservation advocacy campaigns focused on often far-away „virgin forests‟, while their own urbia keep sprawling and consuming the rich traditional countryside. Such cultural severance threatens not only the diversity and beauty of abandoned and neglected landscapes but also our own sense of identity.

    Scenic values of developing city in Polish spatial planning system. Example of Rzeszów
    (Zakład Architektury Krajobrazu, Wydział Biologiczno-Rolniczy, Uniwersytet Rzeszowski, 2018) Wójcik-Popek, Agnieszka; Jaworska, Agata; Kołodziej-Marek, Łucja
    The binding spatial planning system in Poland includes the protection of scenic values in an insufficient way. The progressive, rapid urbanization threatens the existing points and planes of passive exposure, lowering the scenic and landscape values. The paper compares various definitions of landscape and landscape values and analyzes the provisions of the current Study of Conditions and Directions of Spatial Development of the municipality of Rzeszów in terms of the identification and protection of scenic values and compares attractive landscapes with the coverage of the Local Spatial Development Plan.

    From mysterious Lake George to classy Lake Burley Griffin: the white settlers‟ tale of two lakes
    (Zakład Architektury Krajobrazu, Wydział Biologiczno-Rolniczy, Uniwersytet Rzeszowski, 2018) Papp, Éva
    In New South Wales, Australia, around 1820, the white discovery and colonisation of Weereewa (renamed to Lake George) and the Limestone Plains (now Canberra) went hand in hand. However, the development paths of the two regions had separated, when, after the 1901 Federation of Australia, competition for the site of the National Capital was won by Canberra in 1908, and Lake George missed out. Consequently, the artificial Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra was created and subsequently developed into the classy water body that Parliament House is reflected in today. Lake Burley Griffin is intimately known, loved, photographed, talked about as one of the symbols of the Nation, and its artificial water body is used for various recreational activities. On the contrary, Lake George remained a generally untouched, intermittent natural lake, mysterious and distant for most Canberrans. This paper summarises and contrasts the story of Lake George and Lake Burley Griffin, underlining how landscape influenced colonial and modern history.
