I also think that the idea that ‘yesterday was better than today’ is still very much present in the general population and particularly in environmental studies. While many conservation, environmental and ecological studies are done because they are needed to understand the environmental systematics, some unnecessarily promote the return of an ecosystem to its past appearance, as if yesterday’s ecosystem is consistently better than today’s. This type of thinking also implies we can cut out an ecosystem from the landscape and treat it as devoid of relationships with the rest of the world.
