Aaron Thompson Co-Authored New Paper in Landscape Journal

Aaron Thompson coauthored a new paper in the Landscape Journal with Robert Marzec (Purdue – English Department) and Gary Burniske (Purdue – College of Agriculture) titled, “Climate BufferNet: a Gaming Simulation Linking Biodiversity Conservation and Climate Change Adaptation with Agricultural Landscape Planning.” Climate BufferNet is an educational, visual simulation designed to engage higher education students in the Midwestern United States with ideas for improving rural landscape planning outcomes. The simulation uses ecological, economic, and social data inputs to support student understanding of biodiversity conservation and climate change adaptation within agricultural landscapes.
