Author: Pijanowski, Bryan C.; Iverson, Louis R.; Drew, Ashton C.; Bulley, Henry N.N.; Rhemtulla, Jeanine M.; Wimberly, Michael C.; Bartsch, Annett; Peng, Jian.;

Date: 2010

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description:

We argue for the landscape ecology community to adopt the study of poverty and the ecology of landscapes as a Grand Challenge Topic. We present five areas of possible research foci that we believe that landscape ecologists can join with other social and environmental scientists to increase scientific understanding of this pressing issue: (1) scale and poverty; (2) landscape structure and human well-being; (3) social and ecological processes linked to spatial patterns in landscapes; (4) conservation and poverty, and (5) applying the landscape ecologist’s toolkit. A brief set of recommendations for landscape ecologists is also presented.

Keywords: poverty, millennium development goals, grand challenge topic, scale, biological conservation, human well-being
