"Food & Landscape Diversity"
This is a closed meeting for a funded group of visiting scholars.
Landscape configuration impacts ecosystem services, yet direct links to human well-being remain elusive. Particularly little is known about landscape diversity (and configuration) feedbacks to nutrition, despite the multiple pathways through which interactions might occur. This project examines the direct and indirect roles forests play in human nutrition and dietary diversity and quality. We will assemble and integrate multi-scale datasets and inter-disciplinary analytical approaches and forge a conceptual framework to move beyond dichotomous perspectives on land use (e.g., beyond food vs. forests, land-sharing-sparing).
