"Space appropriation is always the appropriation of some ecosystems. Quite often, only spatial elements are taken into account and the spatial support of the ecosystem becomes, for example, cnnatructible support. The consumption of natural spaces can thus be analysed through the phenomenon of country-houses. In the european industrial societies, the problem of the access to nature can be solved, indeed, through a will of individual appropria tion of "naturalapacea". These so-called natural spaces are nothing but dis membered elements of the ecosystem the traces, the markers of an initial ecosystem on it's way of disappearing ; revived and diffused by the mass-media the myth of an always good nature, encourages a mode of appropriation of so called natural apace. This mode of appropriation is now also a fashion which is mainly based on the misapprehension of real ecological mechanisms and on that of the necessary management of the environment. The consequences are the reinforcement of the process of dismemberement of the ecosystem leading to an increasing degredation of environment. It means that now the initial ecosystem is completely disappea ring from some areas being used as a support to - constructions - markers as trees, greens and "exotica" plantations trying to recreate an image of the nature. The major problem of a territorial planning which should include the ecological cares in the spatial planning process would than be to struggle against the devastating consequences of this type of apace appropriation."
