Recent studies have pointed out that the biological concept of biodiversity is also linked to cultural practices that create the conditions for several plant and animal species to thrive in man managed landscapes. We argue that interdisciplinary research is the most appropriate way of studying complex socio-ecological systems that are embedded in the concept of cultural landscapes. These studies are challenged by several methodological problems, such as how to combine various kind of data gathered by the different researchers involved (biologists, ecologists, ethnologists, anthropologists, ecology historians); and how to combine diachronic and synchronic data for the outcomes of the researches.
