Landscape 2018 – Frontiers of agricultural landscape research.
Agricultural landscapes are shaped by human activities and are subject to permanent change through the interplay of natural processes, land use and societal developments. Knowledge about the underlying processes of landscape dynamics at all relevant spatial and temporal scales is the prerequisite for sustainable landscape management.
The aim of the conference is to present recent advances in landscape research to enhance the development of sustainable agricultural land use and landscape strategies. The particular objective is to bring together key findings from relevant disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches as well as from basic and application-oriented research. Furthermore the conference focuses on recent scientific work related to Landscape Functioning, Land Use and Governance and Landscape Synthesis
This international conference takes place from 12th to 16th March 2018 in Berlin, Germany and in addition to a wide range of workshops and presentations also offers excursions for all participants.
The event is hosted by Katharina Helming from the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF) in Müncheberg, Brandenburg, which also provides one of the conference chairs; Frank A. Ewert (ZALF) alongside Mark Rounsevell (IMK-IFU, KIT, Garmisch, GER).
Plenary Keynote Speakers are Yiqi Luo (Northern Arizona University; USA), Sandrine Petit (INRA, France) and Marcel van Oijen (Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH); Edinburgh).

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.
You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).
Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.
You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).
If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
