25 years of landscape ecology: scientific principles in practice

International Association for Landscape Ecology (IALE) World congress

8th to 12th July 2007

What was the event?

The congress brought together 25 years of achievements in landscape ecology and focused on the scientific principles and their practical applications to conservation planning, land and water management, and land-use planning both now and in the future.

The discussions showed the increasing importance of remote sensing and geographic information systems, spatial statistics and modelling at the present day. The congress also demonstrated how landscape ecology is playing an increasingly important role in spatial planning in terms of landscape and biodiversity.
