DescriptionAmong the three of us, we have attended every annual meeting of the U.S. Chapter of the International Association of Landscape Ecology (US-IALE), and at least 20 meetings each. There have been several reviews of published research from the journal Landscape Ecology that have suggested a need for or documented a trend of moving away from purely descriptive studies quantifying pattern towards more technologically and analytically rigorous examinations of processes occurring over a wider range of spatiotemporal scales to guide design and management activities (Wiens 1992; Hobbs 1997; Andersen 2008; Wu 2013). Annual conferences can provide a different perspective on a field. To provide a unique temporal perspective on how themes of landscape ecology research in the U.S. have ebbed and waned, we examined and classified each oral presentation or poster title from the abstract books prepared for each meeting, beginning with the first conference in 1986.
