Abstract A procedure in backcasting scenarios is presented. Two case-studies differing in scale illustrate the differences in ecological contribution to plan design and to plan evaluation. Scenarios for nature development are presented for both case-studies, based on ecological objectives and spatial strategies in planning. In order to evaluate the ecological impact of the scenarios, a computer model (LEDESS), using a geographical information system, has been developed. The model is an expert system describing the development of vegetation and animal habitats in relation to abiotic conditions and management. It is a tool for policy making in planning rather than an accurate predictive model.
