              Pattern and Process in Landscape Ecology
           Eighth Annual U.S. Landscape Ecology Symposium

                           CALL FOR PAPERS

           24-27 March 1993 (Wednesday through Saturday)

                    Oak Ridge National Laboratory
                         Oak Ridge, Tennessee


Landscape ecology focuses explicitly on the linkages between 
spatial and temporal patterns at broad scales and ecological and
socioeconomic processes.  Current research is elucidating the
processes that generate the dynamic patterns observed in the
landscape and the processes affected by changes in these patterns.
Landscape management and design may seek to create or maintain
broad-scale patterns or processes (e.g., through regional planning 
or natural area management).  The relative importance of patterns 
or processes may vary with scale, and landscape ecology also
addresses scale relationships.  The symposium will focus on this
complex interplay between pattern and process.

The Meeting

The symposium will be hosted by the Environmental Sciences
Division of Oak Ridge National Laboratory as part of the celebration
of the 50th anniversary of the Laboratory.  The meeting will be held
in adjacent conference facilities at Oak Ridge Associated Universities
and the Garden Plaza Hotel in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.  As in the
past, the symposium will consist of 2 1/2 days of contributed papers
and posters, several keynote addresses, a half-day field trip on
Thursday afternoon,  and a full-day field trip on Saturday.  Field
trips will offer opportunities to learn of the special character and
function of southern Appalachian landscapes, including the Great
Smoky Mountains National Park.

Contributed Papers and Posters

Abstracts are invited for contributed papers and posters covering any
aspect of landscape ecology.  Posters will be displayed throughout
the meeting and are highly encouraged to minimize the number of
concurrent oral presentation sessions.  Oral presentations are
restricted to 15 minutes.  The preferred method of submission is via 
e-mail, but disks of Mac Word, IBM Wordperfect, or ascii are also 
acceptable. The abstract must be limited to 300 words or less and 
conform to this format:

Jordon, Michael1, and George Bush2, 1University of Chicago,
Chicago, IL 61800, and 2University of Texas, Austin, TX.  The landscape 
ecology issues we face.
