IALE: Future Landscape Ecology

future_ecology_ialeuk
The International Association for Landscape Ecology (UK) held its annual conference at the University of Brighton, 14-16 September. This year’s focus was ‘Future Landscape Ecology’ with sessions on Species responses to landscapes; assessing vulnerability and resilience; future scenarios; problem-solving; workshop sessions; landscape-scale adaptation and management.

Richard Smithers,  ialeUK chair stated

The challenge for future landscape ecology is to help create a new narrative for conserving the natural environment, establishing it as the basis for all useful function.

The 2011 conference will be held on 5-8 September(provisional dates) at University of Wolverhampton.
