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.

February 2017

Rachel, Tegan and I are busy slowly working through some lichen specimens in the herbarium which were collected in 1967 and are unidentified. We got curious about the collectors, so we wrote an article, which came out this week in Omphalina (the publication of the NL Foray). Thanks to everyone who helped out with gathering/taking images for the article.


We are hiring some summer field assistants! (at least two of them). One will be open only to students holding an NSERC USRA or a Memorial University USSIP or SURA. Students should apply to USRA/SURA/USSIP first, then my lab. The other will be open to undergrads in general. The first job advertisement is here.
