Annual Conference of the Yale International Society of Tropical Foresters - Attending to Complexity in Tropical Forest Landscapes

Canadian Forestry Events - Mon, 2017-11-13 22:45
The Yale Chapter of the International Society of Tropical Foresters (ISTF) is hosting their 24th Annual Conference titled ?Attending to Socio-ecological Complexity in Tropical Forest Landscapes?, which will take place February 1-3, 2018, at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies (New Haven, CT, USA). ISTF 2018 will delve in the complexity of tropical forest landscapes shaped by interacting ecological, social, and multi-dimensional processes. Complexity includes the dynamic ecologies, socio-political regimes, and diverse stakeholder perspectives that converge within any given tropical forest locale. The conference will bring together practitioners, academics, and forest users to explore the thought, experiences, and methods used for attending to the complexity of tropical forest landscapes. Through speakers, discussion groups, and workshops, we will investigate three aspects of complexity: ecological complexity, socio-political complexity, and the complexity of scale.
