Abstract: Landscape-scale considerations are integral components of managing both public and private lands for holistic conservation outcomes. While public lands form the backbone of the conservation estate, private lands constitute a majority of our urban, natural, and working landscapes. As a result, partnerships with public and private landowners and managers form integral components of landscape conservation. Because delivering conservation at a landscape scale is full of challenges, practical and pragmatic research and tools are necessary for success. For example, an understanding of human dimensions reveals the drivers and motivations that influence complex decision making processes and informs how we can more effectively work with partners to deliver ecosystem conservation, restoration, and management. Presentations in this symposium will describe and illustrate cutting edge research and management techniques pertaining to a variety of topics, such as human dimensions, that are relevant to one or more component of landscape conservation: problem identification, project planning, implementation, management, and evaluation.
