La obra agrarista de Jesús García Fernández (1928-2006)
Member of the School of Spanish Regional Geography created by Manuel de Terán at the CSIC Juan Sebastián Elcano Institute, Jesús García Fernández has left us a remarkable amount of work. His main investigations deal with culture systems, agrarian landscapes and agrarian land organization in Castile and the Atlantic Spain, particularly Galicia and Asturias. He explained the distribution of county exploitations, territory efficiency based in ecological potential, agrarian property and landowning. He showed the agriculture-cattle complementarity and the submission to communal shepherding practices. That is to say, he advocated the necessity to survey throughout the history to understand the landscape organization and its transformation possibilities, considering it as a historical totalizer. He was able to unite history and ecology, proposing the histority of natural conditions and resources management: The lack of permanent geographical environment. Master of relevant agrarian geographers, Jesús García Fernández studied the formation of rural Castilian and Galician landscapes, in the same way as Roger Dion, representing the geography in permanent dialogue with the history.
