Forest Ecosystem and Landscape Ecology Lab


We conduct research, graduate education, and outreach, primarily in forested ecosystems. Work done in our laboratory seeks to understand the basis of sustainable forest landscapes. Projects includes forest ecosystem field studies, forest landscape modeling of land use and climate change effects, GIS and remote sensing applications, analysis of the effects of forest management practices and natural disturbances on ecosystems, the influence of landscape-scale factors on wildlife populations, and effects of land use and historical factors on current landscape patterns and ecosystem processes.

For more specific information about our work, please visit our projects and people web pages. Lab publications, most available to download in PDF format, can be found on our publications page.
