Landscape Dynamics Along Environmental Gradients

The U.S. Regional Association of the International Association for Landscape Ecology (US-IALE) will hold its 2013 Annual Symposium in Austin, Texas for the first time.

The meeting will attract educators and practitioners in the fields of geology, ecology, biology, geography, and landscape preservation and design dedicated to preserving and protecting our natural resources. Highlights will include intensive workshops, plenary sessions, symposia, field trips, oral presentations and posters.

The interdisciplinary Forest People Fire (FPF) project uses systems theory and simulation models to integrate biophysical and socioeconomic interconnections across land ownerships, and examine feedbacks between human and natural subsystems. We hypothesize that fire-prone landscapes are difficult human learning environments because individuals have infrequent encounters with fire and fire effects are spatially variable. These characteristics can limit humans’ ability to develop adaptive behaviors. We test this prediction using an agent-based landscape model and collaborative learning.

Join us in the beautiful setting of the American Southwest for a three-day symposium on the joys and challenges of communicating our understanding of the universe and science in general--whether in the classroom, in a museum or nature center, to general and specific audiences, through books and magazines, on the web, via festivals and fairs, on radio and television, or through the social media.  Preceding the symposium will be a two-day workshop:  In the Footsteps of Galileo, a national workshop of educators in grades 3-12 and in informal settings.

Plan to be part of this seminal gathering on how basic principles of behavior change can help in the fight to preserve our environment. As world-famous climatologist Lonnie Thompson noted in his paper in The Behavior Analyst, there is currently no engineering fix for climate change. For now, the only thing we can do is change human behavior.
