    Abstract

    Place became a focus in natural resource management in the 1990s, with the concept used to improve our understanding of forest, national park and farm management and in managing resource uses such as recreation and tourism (Moore 1997). But what is ‘place’? There is a substantial literature on place in environmental psychology, human geography, anthropology and landscape architecture. Place has also been widely considered in the literary world. Current researchers talk of place creation, place attachment, sense of place and place identity. The most commonly used term is sense of place, one increasingly used to cover two or more components, such as place attachment and place familiarity.
