Yale Urban Ecosystems Services Symposium. Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies
In the wake of Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy and with on-going issues like urban water quality and climate change, researchers and urban planners are increasingly turning to the ecosystem services approach to understand and manage the natural resources of urban landscapes. The Urban Ecosystem Services Symposium will explore the application and utility of urban ecosystem services scholarship by bringing together academics on the cutting edge of this science and city managers using the approach for urban planning. The event will assess the major questions and merits of the urban ecosystem services approach across global, regional, city, and community scales.
