Institute for Landscape Management, University of Freiburg
The Institute for Landscape Management at the Faculty of Forest and Environmental Science of the University of Freiburg has been conducting research on the anthroposphere since 1979. The focus of the institute is not only on the ecology of landscapes, but also on the human inhabitants. Research at the institute, therefore, is comprised of forest and watercourse studies, as well as research concerning social geography.
Issue Areas – Action Issues
Landscape Management covers a wide range of topics and focuses not only on the physical features of the environment, but also the edaphic, climatic and ecological aspects, the social dimensions of the inhabitants and the interactions between all of these. This broad field of research demands an equally extensive array of research methodologies for the various research projects conducted at the institute. Research methodologies, therefore, draw in equal measure from physical, technical and social science backgrounds.
The Institute for Landscape Management places particular importance on research partnerships with the scientific community, private industry, government and NGOs (German: Partners).
