Seascape Ecology: Connecting land, sea & society
The annual ialeUK conference will be held from 7– 8th September 2015 at The University of Edinburgh, with the option to attend a field excursion on 9th September. The conference will appeal to people working in research, policy and practice and will include opportunities for discussion and interaction as well as a social programme in Edinburgh.
Seascape ecology is the application of landscape ecology to the marine and coastal environment. This conference will focus on the emerging shift towards linking both sides of the coastal margin, and how this can help to restore habitat connectivity and protect coastal and marine systems from environmental degradation.
The conference will explore the use of terrestrial, coastal and marine approaches to map seascape, measure spatial pattern and understand drivers of change. The use of seascape ecology to understand the interaction between nature and culture in the future management of coastal systems will also be explored.
