|Session Abstract: Are conservation and poverty alleviation compatible goals in human-dominated landscapes? Many of the world’s poorest peoples live in biodiversity-rich areas, but little is known about the interactions between poverty and ecosystem structure and function, especially at the landscape scale. In this symposium, we present a series of empirical studies examining: the effects of poverty on landscape composition and configuration; the interactions between poverty and stocks and flows of ecosystem services; and the trade-offs and opportunities for aligning poverty alleviation and ecological conservation in complex human-dominated landscapes. Presentations will include case studies from tropical and temperate regions, and marine and terrestrial ecosystems.|
