Labratory of Ecological Biogeography
Research

Research in the Laboratory for Conservation Biogeography focuses on spatial dimensions of how plants, animals, and landscape climatic processes respond and contribute to environmental change.   We seek to contribute to basic scientific understanding as well as provide relevant information for conservation and management.  Along the way, we develop and apply a variety of tools and techniques including remote sensing, hierarchical and spatial statistical models, and environmental logger/sensor networks.
