Conference: Yale 2018 International Society of Tropical Foresters Conference

Tropical forest landscapes are complex systems shaped by interacting ecological, social, and multi-dimensional processes. Complexity includes the dynamic ecologies, socio-political regimes, and diverse stakeholder perspectives that converge within any given tropical forest locale. While many who live and work in tropical forest landscapes have acknowledged the need to move away from soiled management, challenges persist for addressing the socio-ecological complexity of forest landscapes.

Attending to socio-ecological complexity means adopting new frameworks that capture the range of drivers, stakeholders and knowledge in tropical forest management. The 2018 International Society of Tropical Foresters Conference will bring together practitioners, academics, and forest users to explore the thought, experiences, and methods used for attending to the complexity of tropical forest landscapes.
