Meeting Theme

Contemporary landscape ecology continues to explore the causes and consequences of landscape heterogeneity across a range of scales, and demand for the scientific underpinnings of landscape planning and management remains high. The 23rd annual symposium will focus on one of the current frontiers in landscape ecology: understanding the patterns, causes, and consequences of spatial heterogeneity for ecosystem function. Spatial fluxes of matter, energy and information influence the functioning of individual ecosystems and heterogeneous landscapes, but progress at the interface of ecosystem and landscape ecology has been relatively slow compared to other areas. Integrating the understanding gained from ecosystem and landscape ecology will enhance progress in both disciplines while generating new insights into how landscapes function.
