Edgar Kesteloot, former chairman of Belgische Natuur- en Vogelreservaten (BNVR) and head of department at the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences (KBIN) gave lectures in 1954 and 1955 about changes in the fl ora and fauna of the previous 100 years. He also published a few articles on the subject. The author sought explanations for the changes in the emergence of new, man-made or altered habitats, as well as in climate change! He was also concerned about the rise in sea level. Some present-day natural and environmental themes seem to have a longer history than we commonly think.
