I had a great experience attending and presenting at the US Regional Association of the International Association for Landscape Ecology (US-IALE) conference this week in Chicago, alongside several other members of the Miller Lab.

US-IALE defines Landscape Ecology in the following way:

"Landscape ecology is about people, ecosystems, species, energy, pollutants, GIS and remote sensing, modeling, disturbance, flows, conservation, and many many other things. What distinguishes landscape ecology from other areas of ecological and conservation science is the explicit link between spatial pattern and spatial processes. Landscape ecologists are fundamentally interested in what shapes landscape patterns and how these patterns influence various ecological processes."

Check out the abstracts from all of the Miller lab attendees :

Coon, Nelson, Morton, & Miller. "Landowners, Non-Native Plants, and Grassland Birds: Exploring Possibilities for Management on Privately-Owned Pastures That Serve as Wildlife Habitat"

Swartz, Mattes, Coon, & Miller. "Integrating Historical, Ecological, and Social Data to Understand Patterns of Amphibian Occupancy and Habitat Availability in an Agroecosystem"

Capozzelli & Miller. "Using Fire and Grazing to Reduce Woody Encroachment on Grasslands in the Central United States"

Additionally, an abbreviated version of my presentation (with unpublished data removed) can be viewed here.

Of course we had to take a brief break from IALE to enjoy the bird collections at the Field Museum!
