Scientific Alliance Position

We believe that a rational approach to our one of our primary natural resources - land - is important for a variety of reasons. There are a number of seemingly conflicting interests which have to be balanced, including the livelihood of farmers, food security, supply of renewable raw materials, biodiversity and the visual and recreational aspects of landscape. An open-minded approach to all issues and a willingness to learn from the best of various alternative management systems is likely to produce the best outcomes for all. Single-minded, doctrinaire philosophies are not the answer.
