ialeUK Annual Conference 2014--Urban landscape ecology: science, policy and practice
2014-09-01 to 2014-09-03
London, UK

This conference will consider how concepts from landscape ecology can inform the maintenance and restoration of healthy, properly functioning natural environments across urban and peri-urban landscapes, as the foundation of sustained economic growth, prospering communities and personal wellbeing.

Conference themes will include: managing and planning urban landscapes for wildlife and people; patches and heterogeneity in urban landscapes; mapping and modelling ecosystem services (including regulation of air and water quality, as well as cultural services); and ecological connectivity of aquatic environments. In this second call we would particularly welcome abstracts dealing with social and cultural dimensions and urban aquatic and wetland environments.

This year, preparations will shift into high gear for the most important protected areas event of the decade, the IUCN World Parks Congress. Held only once every ten years, the sixth IUCN World Parks Congress will be hosted by Australia in Sydney, from 12 to 19 November 2014. Serving as more than a meeting place, the WPC is designed to achieve outcomes that have global and local impact, and influence the direction and trends involved in contemporary PA management. This Congress will serve as a vital link to achieving IUCN’s overall vision of a “just world that values and conserves nature” and deliver the IUCN Programme 2013-2106.

ACES: Linking Science, Pratice and Decision Making
2014-12-08 to 2014-12-11
Washington, DC, USA

ACES: A Community on Ecosystem Services represents a dynamic and growing assembly of professionals, researchers, and policy makers involved with ecosystem services. The ACES 2014 Conference brings together this community in partnership with Ecosystem Markets and the Ecosystem Services Partnership (ESP), providing an open forum to share experiences, methods, and tools, for assessing and incorporating ecosystem services into public and private decisions.

The focus of the conference is to link science, practice, and sustainable decision making by bringing together the ecosystem services community from around the United States and the globe. ACES 2014 will bring together leaders in government, NGOs, academia, Native American communities, and the private sector to advance the use of ecosystem services science and practice in conservation, restoration, resource management, and development decisions.
