ialeUK is the UK Regional Chapter of the International Association for Landscape Ecology. With the aim of promoting landscape ecology, we were founded on 22 September 1992 at a meeting at Nottingham University entitled, Landscape Ecology in Britain.
Landscape ecology is the study of interactions, across space and time, between the structure and function of physical, biological and cultural components of landscapes; marine, freshwater, and on land.
The core aims of ialeUK
- To promote interest, learning and understanding of landscape ecology
- To promote inter-disciplinary research across the many fields in landscape ecology
- To encourage communication between scientists, policy makers, planners and practitioners concerned with landscape ecology.
ialeUK is a limited company and a not-for-profit organisation.
