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.

Summer 2021

This summer is going to be a bit different (maybe?) owing to adjusting slowly back to normal as COVID restrictions ease, as well as with our Department’s pending move to a new building. So, I’m not doing monthly updates (June is half gone and I haven’t updated) and will add content as things happen.

Here’s what’s new:

  • Welcome to PhD student Hayley who is now physically on the Rock, finished her quarantine and staring field work!
  • Welcome to new Honours student Triina (her profile will go up soon)!
  • Congratulations to alumna Tegan for being awarded the Luella K. Wersub Award for best paper in Mycology for a paper published from her MSc!
  • I am presenting (virtually) at the Canadian Botanical Association Meeting in July
  • There’s are two new papers out from the TERG group. Matteo (Leroux) lab is the lead one one and Travis, Bella and I are co-authors from this lab (along with others); and Bella is the lead on the other. References (and links where available) below.
