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.
Congrats to Tegan on submission of a chapter from her completed thesis as a manuscript for publication. Fingers crossed! Also, good luck to you as your start your new job at Terra Nova National Park this month.
In other lab news, Patrick was just at the ABLS/Botany meeting in Tucson, Arizona presenting his lichen predictive models. Congratulations to Patrick on being one of three “Honourable Mentions” for the A.J. Sharp Award for best student paper presentation! My collaborator Troy McMullin from the Canadian Museum of Nature was also there presenting some of our ideas on “old growth” vs. continuous forests.
I had a little work trip to Tampa, FL, and despite the heat and mostly indoor meetings, I got an hour of hiking in at a Bald Cyprus swamp. I added a new lichen for my “life list” that I was super excited about – Cryptothecia rubrocincta (aka “the Christmas lichen”).
