    The International Association for Landscape Ecology (IALE) is deeply troubled by the Russian government’s attack on Ukraine, the escalating violence, and the disastrous impact on people affected by the conflicts. Our thoughts are with the people of Ukraine at this difficult time.

    Global climate change, biodiversity loss and intensifying human activities have already caused the landscape changes to become a global threat. Warfare, besides tremendous suffering it brings to people, inexorably further harms both natural and cultural landscapes, with permanent direct consequences to landscape’s abilities to guarantee safe and healthy lives for nature and the peoples depending on it. It will bring cascading long-term and large-scale consequences to all humankind, also beyond those directly in contact with the conflict.

    IALE is the worldwide organization for landscape ecologists, with a primary mission to promote global collaboration. In times of conflicts and crises, IALE as an organization will continue to support the landscape ecologist community. IALE encourages its members and chapters to separate individual scientists from the adverse actions of their home countries/governments, stay united, and treat each other with empathy and mutual respect. IALE is fully committed to global scientific collaboration and dialogues, especially those affected by conflicts and war anywhere in the world, to support a peaceful co-existence on Earth.

    We, the members of Russian chapter of IALE International, condemn the war in Ukraine unleashed by Russian Government. We will do our best to influence Russian public opinion which was damaged by long lasting propaganda in state-controlled media. Well consistently persuade Russian citizens that the bloodshed, for which Putins regime bears full responsibility, undermines all moral standards and threatens global future.

    A of the members of the  IALE Working Group Spatial Analysis of Organisms in the Environment has recently written a book entitled “Individual-based Methods in Forest Ecology and Management” published by Springer. Landscape ecology in forests and woodlands is an integration of structurally different fields. The book put the main ones together to provide practical approaches that can be well implemented in sustainable management of forest ecosystems and their assessment from ecological point of view. The book is consisted of seven chapters and integrates three main fields of tree/plant interactions, biometry of plant growth and human behaviour in forests. The book introduces methods that can reveal interactions of individual plants with other plants, their environment and human. Understanding the individual-based spatial interactions of plants can provide deep insight to establishment and formation of plant communities as one of the main goals in landscape ecology.
