Working Group 'Historical Landscape Ecology'

Landscapes and ecosystems evolve over time, shaped by natural and anthropogenic factors. Understanding ecosystem and landscape development therefore requires insights into their trajectories, but also into the factors and forces driving these trajectories. In recent years, landscape ecologists increasingly acknowledge or even include this historical dimension in the analysis of landscapes and ecosystems.

The objective of the IALE working group “Historical Landscape Ecology” is to provide a forum for continuous debate and exchange on historical landscape ecology concerning emerging challenges, topical issues as well as the further development of theory and methods.

The working group undertakes the following activities:

  • Maintaining an e-mailing list for communication where we discuss and highlight new and interesting studies and where we include PhD-students etc.  To date, we have 77 members from 26 countries.  Please contact us if you would like to join!
  • distribution of new publications from members of the WG by mail and ResearchGate (https://www.researchgate.net/project/Historical-Landscape-Ecology-Group)
  • Organizing symposia at IALE-meetings where we look backwards and forward on what we have achieved and what we want to explore in the future.
  • Arranging small workshop on selected topics in HLE, depending on funding.
  • Engaging in joint publications


All interested colleagues are warmly invited to participate in this working group – please contact Matthias Bürgi.
