ialeUK was founded on 22 September 1992 at a meeting at Nottingham University: Landscape Ecology in Britain. This organisation became the UK Regional Association of the International Association for Landscape Ecology, established to promote landscape ecology.
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.
