David Kittredge gave the invited keynote address in early April at an international symposium on recent advances in land owner extension, organized by the International Union of Forest Research Organizations, the Finnish Forest Research Institute (Metla), University of Helsinki , and Oulu University of Applied Sciences. The meeting was held in Kuusamo, Finland, and focused on peer-to-peer learning among land owners. Kittredge reported on the importance of private woodland owners learning from one another and his research results on the social networks landowners rely upon when making decisions about the future of their land. This research has been the focus of his work with summer REU students interested in social science applications to LTER ecosystem change and future landscape scenarios.
