>> Johann Heinrich von Thünen's (1783-1850) urban land use model goes like this: In the middle is a black dot that represents a city and which is surrounded by zones: 1 (white) dairy and market gardening; 2 (green) forest for fuel; 3 (yellow) grains and field crops; 4 (red) ranching; the outer, dark green area represents wilderness "where agriculture is not profitable". Food globalization has rendered this model (idealized and all) out of date but you can see where it is coming from.
Cryptoforestry on the oche: the city and its surrounding fields are a dart board (or a mandala) written on the land, the wilderness is where your darts shouldn't go. But, it doesn't mean that the marginal area away from the board is not important.<<
