Abstract/Contents:Residential yards represent a significant fraction of the surface area of urban ecosystems. These landscapes, ranging from mesic to xeric, may operate similarly to highly managed agricultural landscapes with varying degrees of water and chemical inputs. As a part of an interdisciplinary workshop of natural and social scientists, we have developed an integrated conceptual model that explores the social and biophysical drivers of residential landscape structure and functioning. One of the primary findings emerging from this work is the importance of landscape legacies. Whereas previous research focuses primarily on ecological legacies in both the structure and function of managed landscapes, little work explores how these legacies interact with and influence the social institutions from which management practices emerge. By conceptualizing the social and ecological components of residential landscapes holistically, as a complex adaptive system, we explore the importance of past interactions within the system in order to better understand the evolution of social institutions relevant to residential landscapes over time. The development industry plays a key role in landscape management as a primary agent of land-use change in cities across the globe. In this work, we will use interviews with housing developers and to explore the forces influencing residential landscaping decisions across time. Our findings will highlight the importance of integrated social-ecological research when studying human dominated landscapes.
