We have the pleasure to inform that the next bianual conference of the IUFRO Landscape Ecology Working Party will be held in Concepción Chile, between 5th and 12th November. This will be the first time that the Working Group will gather in Latin America.
Latin America offers new challenges to Forest Landscape Ecology due to its tremendous heterogeneity of ecosystems and diverse socio-economic conditions. South American forests represent a large fraction of the world’s biodiversity and, in turn, are characterised by progressive deforestation and degradation. Particularly, Chile’s forest landscapes face substancial changes and play a significant role in sustaining humans.
We expect to see you in the next IUFRO Landscape Ecology Working Party conference titled: SUSTAINING HUMANS AND FORESTS IN CHANGING LANDSCAPES: Forests, Society and Global change.
