Topic 1: HUMAN-NATURE RELATIONSHIPS TO SUPPORT SUSTAINABLE FORESTED LANDSCAPES

Session 1.1. Biodiversity islands: pockets of protected land in human dominated environments

Chairs: Florencia Montagnini, Brett Levin and Kjell E. Berg

The purpose of this session was to present examples or case studies where the biodiversity islands approach is used successfully. The contents of this session will serve to promote strategies that support biodiversity conservation through intentionally designed frameworks for sustainable forest landscapes. This session contributes to design parameters on sizing and the distance between islands to be effective in conservation and regeneration across the landscape. The biodiversity islands framework can span rural and urban environments, public and private areas, and can be incorporated into any human modified landscapes as a space for biodiversity to thrive. Results of this session are useful to city planners, farmers, landowners, land managers, foresters, policy makers, and designers.
