Dear IALE Community:
We are excited to announce the results of our elections!
Dr. Markéta Šantrůčková
(Research Institute for Landscape and Horticulture in Czechia) and Dr. Weiqi Zhou
(State Key Laboratory of Urban and Regional Ecology, Research Center for Eco-Environmental Sciences of the Chinese Academy of Sciences) will be joining us as IALE Vice Presidents. Dr. Cristian Echevarrias
(Faculty of Forest Sciences, University of Concepcion, Chile) will continue for another term as VP.
Congratulations, all, and welcome!
We had a good election turnout of around ~30%. Once again, Werner Rolf (Department of Life Science Systems at the Technical University of Munich) provided super valuable assistance. Thanks, Werner! Also thanks to the election committee for identifying and recruiting an excellent slate of candidates.
And a final THANK YOU to our outgoing VPs, Dr. Liding Chen
(The Research Centre for Eco-Environmental Sciences of the Chinese Academy of
Sciences) and Dr. Sima Fakheran
(Isfahan University of Technology in Isfahan, Iran). Your leadership and commitment to all things landscape ecology will be missed.
Robert Scheller, IALE President
