Summary/Abstract: Nature is a whole of the surrounding world left up to its own activities. Natural behaviour is the principle of activities typical in certain way for specific species. The balance in nature is always relative, flexible and changeable, hidden inside the processes and phenomena. The systematic approach is considered holistic, trying to understand the reality at the level of complete, all encompassing and internally interconnected whole. Just as for every relationship, reciprocity is important also for an organism and environment. Communication. Mutual understanding and exchange. Ecosystem is created by mutual synergism of organisms and environment. Together they create a home. The relationships of organisms and their environment is studied by ecology. Ecological thinking views the reality in its relations, changes this reality, my relation to it and also me as a part of it. The whole is more than a sum of individual units. Every individual unit is a component part. The whole is more than a global reality, it is an organisational dynamics. A new view of evolution is created, not as a battle for survival, but as a search for living in coexistence. Something that develops, adjusts, and survives not as an organism but as a relationship. Natural ecosystem is varied and manifold, it does not create a monoculture. It is just its combined nature what makes it more resistant and viable. Landscape is a living system. Landscape is one of organisational levels of life.
