The Land Systems Science Symposium at AAG in Boston on land systems and land systems change will concentrate on advances in our understanding of the nature, dynamics and changes in land systems as coupled human and environmental systems from a geographic perspective. This includes:
  • Land system responses to driving factors related to globalization, including global trade, migration, demographic change, environmental changes, biodiversity losses, telecoupling
  • The nature and rates of land use and cover change, and associated impacts
  • Relationships between land systems, land management, and socio-ecological resilience
  • The role and potential of land systems science as an integral part of sustainability science, and contributions to addressing food, water, energy and environmental security
  • Intersections of Land Change Science, Political Ecology, Historical Geography, and other related fields surrounding land use and livelihoods
  • Methodological developments in description of land systems and in the measurement and monitoring of changes
  • Indigenous perspectives on land, resource management, and sustainability
  • Uses of advanced GIS/remote sensing and modelling technologies
  • The increased availability of datasets (including Citizen Science), and increasing capability for modelling and analysis of change, that offer new insights into land systems and the nature of change
  • Sustainable land systems and landscapes, including analysis and design.
