Landscape ecology, local to global

Manchester 9-12 September 2013

ialeUK and IALE Europe welcome you to the IALE 2013 European Congress website. This major international event examined how and why European landscapes are changing and how landscape ecology can help us to plan for the future at local to global scales. It considered local projects alongside international programmes and provided many opportunities for researchers, policy makers and practitioners to interact. The congress had a European focus but included participants from around the world.


Following an open call, people working in science, policy and practice organised symposia covering a wide range of topics relevant to congress themes. Visit this page for a summary of each symposium. There was an open call for papers in all symposia at the congress. Abstract submissions for presentations or posters were received from people working in research, policy and practice. Over 300 abstracts were received from around the world.
