Conceptual Diagrams: Tools for Science Communication

Conceptual diagrams are an excellent means of providing synthesis, visualization, and appropriate context to science communication, an essential component of environmental problem solving. The creation of conceptual diagrams provides an interface for engagement of various stakeholders, including scientists, managers, and wider public partners. This newsletter discusses how symbols form a visual language, the difference between models and diagrams, how conceptual diagrams fit many applications, and how you can use IAN's symbol libraries to make your own conceptual diagram.
