Welcome!

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.

May 2015

Lab alumna Nyssa Van Vierssen Trip’s thesis work is now published. She’ll be starting her PhD in the Faculty of Environmental Studies at York University this September where she’ll work with Dr. Justin Podur.

The first of May brought some good-byes… a few shorter, a few longer.

We’re sad to say good-bye to our new friend and colleague Jennifer Doering, who visited the LESA Lab for a couple of weeks from the University of Manitoba to learn some landscape ecology and spatial analysis techniques to intergrate with her Masters research on genetic variability in lichens. You can read a bit about Jennifer’s experience by clicking here.

Jennifer D adjusting to NL wind and topography from flat Manitoba. She adapted quite quickly and learned to appreciate our lichen-friendly climate.

Matt left for his 4 month field work on Fogo Island. Looking forward to hearing about his adventures… perhaps we will get him to guest blog from out there.

Andrew will also be taking some time away from the LESA Lab while he does his 4 month co-op work term with Sikumiut Environmental Management. It sounds like he will have some neat travel up to Labrador and will be picking up some new skills along the way.
