The theme for this week’s meeting in Madison, WI was Integrating Conservation and Sustainable Living. The conference was a great venue for presenting interdisciplinary work, and there was a strong contingent of advanced level grad students and post-docs that presented outstanding papers, in addition to those presented by faculty. Our paper [Garbach & Lubell] entitled “ Linking Diffusion of Innovation and Conservation of Ecosystem Services” was well-received in the panel on Ecosystem Services (ES) in Rangeland and Agricultural Systems; you can see further details in the abstract online: http://www.issrm2011madison.iasnr.org/abstractdisp_popup.php?useprikey=Y...

Other papers in the session included: “Do Livestock and ES compete? A State-and-Transition Approach” by John Ritten and co-authors; “ Rangeland Manager’ Beliefs About Climate Change: Implications for Protecting Biodiversity as an ES” by Mark Brunson and Hilary Whitcomb; and “Farming for ES: A Case Study of Stakeholder Perception in Central Iowa” by Drake Larsen, Lisa Shulte, John Tyndall and Nancy Grudens-Schuck. Full abstracts available at:

Our session was lots of fun: a packed room, great questions, and lively discussion afterward added to the papers presented. Highlights from the other concurrent sessions included “A Typeology of Catalyst Events for Water Resource Management” by Linda Prokopy, Kathy Braiser, and Nathan Mullendore. A standout in the network analysis papers was Bob Smail’s “ Connecting Policy to Practice: A Network Analysis of Wisconsin’s Agricultural Nonpoint Policies.” This was by far the most enjoyable and informative conference I’ve attended this year, and I hope to recruit a strong UCD contingent for the next meeting.
