This vitalism is implicit in Hinchliffe’s water voles, which made a mess of conservationists’ systems of classification. But we can find it stated explicitly in the work of numerous contemporary geographers, to the point where this position is rapidly becoming as orthodox as were earlier approaches that assumed nature to be an inert realm of timeless essences.
