How do we build sustainable landscapes and measure their performance? How do we choose what metrics to study and what methods to use? Senior ecologists will discuss the latest science informing constructing habitats and connective matrixes and propose designed research experiments. Experts will include landscape and community ecologists.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the latest ecological developments in constructed terrestrial habitat patches and ways of promoting ecosystem services.
  • Integrate experimental research as a design driver into landscape architecture.
  • Discover how the ecological profession views designed landscapes, and better understand the assumptions and uncertainty associated with ecology.
  • Establish more effective monitoring strategies to support the Sustainable Sites Initiativeā„¢.
