Ethics, Place and Environment 6 (3):227 – 234 (2003)
|Abstract||Literature on place makes use of concepts like authenticity and is often structured around a critique of homogeneity or placelessness. This critique is reinforced by the discourse of conservation biology with its emphasis on protecting biodiversity and condemning some non-native species. However, a common emotional response of humans, when they are displaced, is to make where they are like where they felt at home. The debate around invasive species needs careful handling for both ecological and social reasons. This paper addresses a gap in that debate by taking account of the emotional involvement of humans with plants and their caring for the immediate environment through the activity of gardening.|
