In this condensed version of the above paper, the clock has been turned far back to the study of the emerging of the human-modified, semi-natural cultural landscapes in the Pleistocene, coinciding with the biological and cultural evolution of the Paleolithic 18 Introduction gatherer–hunters. The original paper dealt with paleontological and archeological findings on Mt.

A quarter of a million ships cross the Mediterranean each year, and 40 percent of the 46000 km of coastal shores are built up. Till 2025 these will grow by 4000 km more and 20 million people more will crowd these shores. One hundred and sixty additional power stations will be needed to accommodate the exponentially growing local population and tourists. All this put tremendous pressures both on seascapes and landscapes, but the sad fact is that the richest countries are interested in economic development on account of their Coastal and Sea-rich biological and cultural diversity, and the poor nations claim that their resources are not sufficient to deal with the pollution.

Thanks to these contacts I became an active member of the Society for Restoration Ecology and learned much about the ongoing restoration work in the grasslands and chaparral of California. At the 2001 European IALE conference we co-authored a lecture on the win–win relationships between RE and LE (Naveh and Allen 2001). This was our final conclusion from our restoration work which we could draw from our research in such diverse conditions as Israel, California and Tropical Mexico. Thanks to this world-wide experience.
