  • Abstract in English : A review on people’s visual, aesthetic preferences for landscapes. American and European adult groups prefer nature more than urban and unspectacular natural views. The preference for urban scenes is usually increasing when trees and other vegetation are present. One of the suggestions is that trees and other vegetation can be linked directly to health and in turn related to economy benefits of visual quality.
