And choose our symposia entitled Biocultural Landscape Code: SYMP74.
This symposium is designed to convene researchers and graduate students in landscape ecology, conservation biology, ecology, natural resource management and environmental education and communication, to stimulate fruitful discussions on the current trend of ecosystem service degradation of biocultural landscapes in the world. Current challenges, linked to the anthropic pressure or to climate change (as examples), will be discussed and papers can give insights in addressing such challenges. Emphasis will be on the exploration of the underlying ecological processes affected by anthropogenic activities that are driving ecosystem and landscape patterns in a given area. Research presented at this session may consider plant and animal species diversity, forests, shrub communities, grasslands and wetlands. These may involve field measurements, observation, experiments, modeling, and environmental education and communication within the context of the biocultural landscape in the era of the Anthropocene. The symposium will be a great venue to develop future cooperation among researchers and graduate students working on biocultural landscapes
