The 8th EAFES International Congress


The 8th EAFES International Congress is coming!


On behalf of the Ecological Society of Japan, and the Local Organizing Committee of the 8th EAFES International Congress, we would like to welcome you all to participate in the 8thEAFES International Congress, April 21st-23rd, 2018, Nagoya, Japan.

The aim of EAFES is to promote and develop ecological science and academic societies in East Asia by organizing symposia, academic meetings, and joint research collaboratively among the Ecological Society of China (ESC), the Ecological Society of Japan (ESJ), and the Ecological Society of Korea (ESK). Recently, the Society of Subtropical Ecology in Taiwan and the ILTER East Asia-Pacific Regional Network also joined the members of the executive committee. The 1st EAFES International Congress was held in Mokpo, South Korea in October 2004 and afterwards biennially. Since then, every International Congress has been coordinated in turn by ESK, ESJ, and ESC: Niigata, Japan (2006); Beijing, P.R. China (2007); Sangju, South Korea (2010); Otsu, Japan (2012); Haikou, P.R. China (2014); and Daegu, South Korea (2016).

The theme of the 8th EAFES International Congress is “The Role of East Asian Ecology in a Changing World”, Focusing on the role of ecology and ecologists in promoting harmonious and sustainable development in the context of global climate change and socio-economic shifts. East Asian countries are facing the challenge of establishing a new perspective in the wake of rapid economic growth with aging populations, deteriorated environments and significant biodiversity loss. Therefore, at this EAFES Congress we expect a wide range of topics on new trends in ecology with innovative technologies as well as paradigm changes including interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches.

We sincerely hope that all participants at the 8th EAFES International Congress will enjoy the meeting not only in terms of academic knowledge and skills, but also through forming further collaborations, connections and friendships.

Tata Laksana Profesi TALAPRO: The Birthday

The modern profession of landscape architecture, according to Norman T. Newton, began with the design of Central Park in New York City by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux (Newton 1971). May 1863 is considered by Newton to be the founding date for the profession. On May 12, 1863, Frederick Law Olmsted Sr. and Calvert Vaux resigned their positions as designers of New York’s Central Park and signed their resignation letter “Olmsted and Vaux, Landscape Architects.” This is the first official use of the title Landscape Architect and “serves to establish the date, perhaps better than any other, as the birthday of the profession of landscape architecture” (Newton 1971, 273).


Tata Laksana Profesi TALAPRO: The Definition

  • Landscape Architecture is the profession which applies artistic and scientific principles to the research, planning, design, and management of both natural and built environments.
  • Practitioners of this profession apply creative and technical skills and scientific, cultural, and political knowledge in the planned arrangement of natural and constructed elements on the land with a concern for the stewardship and conservation of natural, constructed and human resources.
  • The resulting environments shall serve useful, aesthetic, safe, and enjoyable purposes.

MG 12 LPP Agroforestri

MG 12 LPP Agroforestri

Agroforestri menggabungkan ilmu kehutanan dan pertanian, serta memadukan usaha kehutanan dengan pembangunan perdesaan untuk menciptakan keselarasan antara intensifikasi pertanian dan pelestarian hutan.

Definisi Agroforestri bisa dibahas dari berbagai bidang ilmu, seperti ekologi, agronomi, kehutanan, botani, geografi, lanskap, maupun ekonomi.

Agroforestri  adalah nama bagi sistem-sistem dan teknologi penggunaan lahan di mana tegakan pohon berumur panjang (termasuk semak, palem, bambu, kayu, dll) dan tanaman pangan dan atau pakan ternak berumur pendek diusahakan pada petak lahan yang sama dalam suatu pengaturan ruang dan waktu.

Dalam sistem-sistem Agroforestri terjadi interaksi ekologi dan ekonomi antar unsur-unsurnya.


Agroforestri Sederhana

  • Perpaduan konvensional yang terdiri atas sejumlah kecil unsur (skema Agroforestri klasik).
  • Unsur pohon dengan peran ekonomi penting (kelapa, karet, cengkeh, jati)
  • Unsur pohon dengan peran ekologi (dadap dan petai cina)
  • Unsur tanaman semusim (padi, jagung, sayur-mayur, empon-empon, rerumputan)
  • Tanaman lain dengan nilai ekonomi (pisang, kopi, coklat, dll).
  • Tumpangsari merupakan bentuk Agroforestri sederhana yang paling banyak dibahas à merupakan sistem taungya versi Indonesia yang diwajibkan di areal hutan jati di Jawa.
  • Dikembangkan dalam program perhutanan sosial PT Perhutani.
  • Agroforestri sederhana juga menjadi ciri umum pada pertanian komersial: kopi sejak dahulu diselingi dengan tanaman dadap, yang menyediakan naungan bagi kopi dan kayu bakar bagi petani; kelapa dengan coklat; karet dan rotan; randu di pematang sawah; jeruk dan cengkeh.


Agroforestri Kompleks

  • Merupakan sistem-sistem yang terdiri dari sejumlah besar unsur pepohonan, perdu, tanaman musiman dan atau rumput.
  • Penampakan fisik dan dinamika di dalamnya mirip dengan ekosistem hutan alam primer maupun sekunder.
  • Keunggulan sistem ini: perlindungan dan pemanfaatan sumberdaya air dan tanah; serta mempertahankan keragaman biologi.

Tahapan terbentuknya Agroforestri Kompleks diawali denganpembukaan hutan dan perladangan untuk tanaman semusim (padi ladang 2-3 panen, atau tanaman palawija). Selanjutnya penanaman perpaduan sementara yang berisi tanaman semusim dan pepohonan (tidak hanya penghasil kayu tetapi produksi lainnya).


Pola Tanam Tumpangsari

  • Penanaman dua atau lebih jenis tanaman sekaligus pada sebidang tanah yang sama.
  • Merupakan usahatani intensif berdasarkan pemanfaatan waktu dan ruang tumbuh.
  • Agroekosistem pertanaman yang lebih kompleks karena tanaman yang tumbuh bersama dalam satu komunitas dapat saling mempengaruhi satu sama lainnya baik berupa kompetisi maupun komplementer.

Perkembangan perdesaan seharusnya berupa meta-morfosa sosial ekonomi dan budaya yang wajar dan dapat meningkatkan kualitas hidup. Perubahan sosial tsb. Mengandung tiga sub-proses: utilisasi, ekualisasi dan apresiasi.

  • Utilisasi menyangkut berbagai usaha pemanfaatan berbagai s.d.a. dilengkapi dengan pendayagunaan s.d.m. berupa aneka pendapatan dan penemuan baru
  • Ekualisasi bertalian erat dengan pemerataan hasil material dan nilai sosial seperti iptek dan kesempatan kerja serta kesenangan.
  • Apresiasi mencakup penafsiran terhadap berbagai hal yang dinyatakan berupa peristilahan nilai.
