2008: Landscape Ecology and Conservation

The 2008 IALE (UK) conference Landscape Ecology and Conservation was held between 8th - 11th September 2008 at Cambridge University.

Conference proceedings available now

Conference sessions included:

  • Conservation in Farmed Landscapes
  • Dispersal in Fragmented Landscapes
  • Culture and Landscapes
  • Distribution and Fragmented Landscapes
  • Theory Into Practice: Landscape Ecology Being Used to Conserve Habitats and Species

The field trip visited the Great Fen Project and Wicken Fen. These areas are recreating wetland landscapes in the Fenland of East Anglia near to Cambridge. They are part of the largest wetland restoration in Europe. Each is being managed in a different way to create habitats over the next one hundred years, but hopefully faster than this!
