  • Abstract in English : In connection with the development of a landscape management plan at Bygdøy in Oslo, the possible conflicts between cultural and natural heritage monument management has come up. The historical gardens that are parts of this landscape, and the cultural landscape itself are objects for protection and possibly restoration. At the same time the biodiversity and natural heritage values in the area are also being considered worthy of conservation. The purpose of this research has therefore been to identify the differences and similarities in approaches and aims in the two processes leading towards cultural and natural heritage protection, and to investigate possibilities for communication and cooperation. We have found significant differences in the language and methodology of the two sides, and also identified common aims and possibilities for cooperation.
