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.
Yikes, it’s the middle of July and I’ve not updated the website. Things must be busy! Students are all at work (see Andrew’s work term guest blog here) or in the field. Matt is still up on Fogo and a team just got back from two weeks of hard work on the northern Peninsula. Matt sent this awesome photo from Fogo…
I was recently in Portland, Oregon for the IALE World Congress. It was great. I guess between co-ordinating field work, getting ready for the congress and travelling, I have not updated here. I saw lots of great talks from all over the world, and it seemed that every Canadian landscape ecologist was there too. In honour of hard-working Canucks in the US, here’s a photo of a sculpture just outside the hotel in Portland.
In publishing news – the issue of ACE-ECO with Karla’s paper is officially rolled out (though her article was online already over a month ago). The full issue is here.
As well, a special issue on the topic of “Protected Areas and Sustainable Forest Management” which I edited is out in Conservation and Society. See the complete Table of Contents here.
