ABOUT ICOET

The International Conference on Ecology and Transportation is conducted every two years to identify and share quality research applications and best management practices that address wildlife, habitat, and ecosystem issues related to the delivery of surface transportation systems. ICOET is the primary forum for an international gathering of foremost experts in ecology and transportation to showcase effects, issues, and, most importantly, solutions.

 

ICOET is a multi-disciplinary, inter-agency supported event administered by the Center for Transportation and the Environment at North Carolina State University.

ICOET 2009: ADAPTING TO CHANGE

Our transportation systems and ecosystems need to be addressed in the context of global climate change and shifts in transportation funding and priorities. Our natural and built environments are confronting changes that will unfold on multiple scales and impact many interrelated elements. The high degree of interaction between transportation infrastructure and natural systems requires increasingly interdisciplinary, integrated approaches to planning, building, maintaining and monitoring the health of these systems.

In 2009, ICOET will focus on the challenges ahead as we adapt for future global climate changes, shifts in transportation demand and patterns, and evolving environmental and transportation policy.
