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.

November 2015

The month is off to a busy start. My colleages Dr. Max Liboiron, Dr. Jeffrey Parsons, and I, together with MES student Krista, ran a successful beach clean up and data collection for our work on citizen science and marine plastics.

Yolanda spent the better part of the first week of November in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Labrador, chairing WERAC meetings. It was a productive meeting! The highlight was a public open house/meet and greet at the Labrador North Chamber of Commerce.
