Dear colleagues, Abstract submissions are invited for the symposium 59 entitled “Understanding the capacity of Landscape connectivity and ecosystem integrity to supply multiple ecosystem services: insights into sustainable landscapes” at the 10th IALE World Congress (http://www.iale2019.unimib.it/) in Milan, Italy from July 1-5, 2019. For details see attch regarding the logical framework of the session. We welcome presentations considering integrated approaches offering synergies and new capabilities for connectivity conservation planning that should allow to monitor ecosystem integrity and the capacity to support multiple ecosystem services.
Deadline for abstracts submissions 25th January
Is important you select Symposium 59 when submitting on line
Looking forward to see you in Milano in 2019

I hope you are doing well :)
I want to draw your attention to a recently launched initiative led by the IUFRO - IFSA Joint Task Force on Education, who also led the Educators Forum at the IUFRO Posadas event.
As many of you are educators yourself perhaps you have a method or best practice that could be showed off to the world and help raise the profile of the importance of Forest Education in the Latin American context, or perhaps you have a colleague who should be rewarded for their great teaching initiatives.
This year the International forest community has decided to celebrate Forest Education as a theme on the auspices of the International Day of Forests Celebration (every year on March 21st).
To do so a few different international organizations, mainly IUFRO, IFSA, University of Helsinki and FAO, have come together to launch 2 competitions for educators with three very intriguing prizes.
The first competition on Best Practices in Forestry education is available here:
With a prize package of 1) An all-inclusive trip to Brazil to the World Forestry Congress 2) A fully funded forest visit to Finland
The second competition is put on by FAO, available here: <http://www.fao.org/international-day-of-forests/teachers-contest/en/> http://www.fao.org/international-day-of-forests/teachers-contest/en/
With a prize package of a fully funded trip to Rome to celebrate IDF here at UNFAO HQ.
I hope this can be of use to you and hope you can also share within your networks.
Coordinator- Joint Task Force,
Liaison Officer - FAO 2016-2018

Piazza della Scienza 1, Milan (Italy)
herewith we remind of our <https://www.wsl.ch/en/about-wsl/events/courses-offered-by-wsl/summer-school…> International Summer School in Land-System Science ( <https://www.wsl.ch/land-system-science-2019> https://www.wsl.ch/land-system-science-2019) which will take place from
July 7 to 12, 2019 in Filzbach (Switzerland)
Students will develop an integrated understanding of land system science and landscape assessment. They learn to use state-of-the-art data, tools, and models for spatial analyses as well as improve their ability to build strong connections between scientific understanding and the communities of practice and policy that govern and manage the use of land.
This summer school is organized by the Swiss Federal Institute of Forest, Snow and Landscape Research WSL in cooperation with the Global Land Programme GLP and University of Berne. The lecturers build a multi-disciplinary group of renowned scientists from WSL, ETH Zurich, Wageningen University, Free University of Amsterdam, and University of Berne.
You find all information and the flyer to download at: <https://www.wsl.ch/land-system-science-2019> https://www.wsl.ch/land-system-science-2019
The deadline for application is extended until January 15, 2019. Please upload a motivation letter and a 1-page CV with your registration.
Please note that this summer school will take place right after the world congress of the International Association of Landscape Ecology IALE in Milano (Italy). You can reach the summer school venue in less than a half-day train trip from Milano.
Please spread this email among your colleagues, students, and anybody who may be interested!
Looking forward to your applications!

Objet : Graduate Position in Fire Effects and Landscape Ecology at Penn
Graduate Position in Fire Effects and Landscape Ecology, Department of
Geography Penn State University
Penn State is seeking a PhD or MS student to work as a research assistant on
projects evaluating the effects, spatial patterns, and drivers of recent
wildland fires in the Klamath Mountains and southern Cascades of California.
The research and graduate program will be supervised by Dr. Alan Taylor.
Applicants should have experience with field measurements of vegetation and
site conditions, GIS and remote sensing, and a background in ecology,
geography, landscape ecology or related field. Research work includes:
inventory of forest overstory, understory and fuels and conducting
geospatial analysis and developing models of fire severity using
field-collected and remotely sensed data. Students will be expected to
supervise undergraduate field technicians. Applicants will have an
opportunity to participate in a Landscape-U, a new NSF Research Traineeship
in Landscape Science at Penn State.
To apply, please send your Curriculum Vitae (resume) a statement about your
research interests, transcripts, a statement about your career goals and the
names, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of 2 references to Alan
