Welcome to the Landscape Ecology and Spatial Analysis (LESA) lab, directed by Dr. Yolanda Wiersma. Please use the links above to navigate my site. Here’s the LESA Lab News for this month.

September 2015


We are happy to see Matt safely back from his 4 months of field work on Fogo. He’s got lots of great data and maps. Also we are happy to welcome back Andrew from his work term and adventures in Labrador – he’ll be busy finishing up his major paper this term.

We’re also welcoming our newsest LESA Lab member – Krista Byrne-Puumula, who is doing an MES related to citizen science and marine plastics (co-supervised by Dr. Max Liboiron).

Also a warm welcome to visiting research, Dr. Gisela Wachinger, from the University of Stuttgart, Germany. She and I are collaborating on research with our NLNature.com users to find out why they use the site, and solicit ideas for ways to make the site better. We’re also working to develop a proposal for future collaborations examining issues and conflicts in and around national parks; comparing Canadian and German case studies.

In funding news, my colleagues Dr. Leroux, Dr. Vander Wal and I recieved a grant from MITACS to support 3 students in our Terrestrial Ecology Research Group.
