As a countryside value, ecology can be defined as the interrelationship between plants and animals and their environment. These interrelationships keep the natural processes running and thus are important for our survival. The ecological health of the countryside is directly connected to the management of nature, landscape, and resources. Mismanagement of these countryside values disturbs the ecological relationships and unbalances the natural processes, with sometimes unrecoverable damage to our natural environment.
