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 2017

New paper just out in Endangered Species Research!

Gomez C, J Lawson, A-L Kouwenberg, H Moors-Murphy, A Buren, C Fuentes-Yaco, E Marotte, YF Wiersma, T Wimmer. 2017. Predicted distribution of whales at risk: identifying priority areas to enhance cetacean monitoring in the Northwest Atlantic Ocean. Endangered Species Research 32: 437-458.

Congratulations to Honours student Rebecca Bowering who successfully defended her thesis at the end of last month.

Teaching term is over and we are busy gearing up for a busy field season. We welcome Patrick and John to the lab as our new summer field assistants!

Travis is off to the CSEE meeting this month – where he is presenting two posters – one on his BC work (before he got here) and one on some stats analysis he did last fall. Have fun in Victoria, Travis!

The annual Biology Graduate Student Symposium last month was a great success. Rachel and Travis both presented posters and Travis won best photo in the “Marine” cateogry.
