The 2013 Annual Symposium for the U.S. Regional Association of the International Association for Landscape Ecology (US-IALE) took place in Austin from April 14-18th. Co-chaired by leading landscape ecologist and faculty member Ken Young, the event was a big success with over 250 papers and posters presented within the three day period. Graduate and undergraduate students Molly Polk, Xuebin Yang, Sara Diamond, Katherine Lininger, Thomas Christiansen, Paul Holloway, Collin Roland and Emily Mixon represented the Department of Geography and the Environment throughout the week. Geography grads also contributed to the strong selection of research presented throughout the week, with Paul Holloway presenting his work in the ‘Spatial Analysis: Movement’ session, and Molly Polk a co-author on a paper in the ‘Landscape Change’ session. Thank you to everyone who volunteered and was involved throughout the week. It would not have been such a success without your help. See you all in Anchorage 2014!
