The LANDIS-II Foundation is hosting a training workshop this summer for new LANDIS-II users in Portland, OR. The training will be held on Saturday August 5, and Sunday August 6 and will precede the Ecological Society of America Meeting, also in Portland.

The LANDIS-II training is designed for those interested in learning how to use LANDIS-II.  The course will be led by Drs. Melissa Lucash and Robert Scheller, with additional instructors to be determined.  The course will cover parameterizing and analyzing the outputs of multiple LANDIS-II extensions, including forest succession (including NECN/ Century), fire, wind, harvesting, and insects.  

The total cost of the 2-day training session is $300 and includes two complementary lunches and a copy of the latest LANDIS-II training manual. Sessions will be held on the Portland State University campus.  Participants will be expected to bring their own laptop computer with LANDIS-II installed (instructions provided).

If you’d like to reserve a spot for the training session, please email Dr. Lucash at  Please register early if you’d like to attend, as the training is limited to 25 participants.
