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.

July 2016

I spent a fun 5 days helping the TERG crew with some vegetation sampling. Here’s the crew after completion of the entire plot!

Justin, Matteo and Travis – no worse for wear after 50 veg plots. 

A paper I am a co-author on with colleagues Roman Lukayanenko (recently moved from Florida International University to University of Saskatchewan), Renee Sieber (McGill), M. Maddah (FIU) and Jeff Parsons (Memorial) is out at the following location:

Lukyanenko R, J Parsons, YF Wiersma, R Sieber, M Maddah. 2016. Participatory design for user-generated content systems: understanding the challenges and moving forward. Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems 28(1): Article 2.

Travis has updated the TERG (Terrestrial Ecology Research Group) site. Check it out here. His bio is not up on my site yet, but he’s hit the ground running with field work, so we can forgive that.

This month Memorial is hosting the Canadian Society of Ecology and Evolution meeting. It should be a great event! Check out the full program here.



In funding news, a project I was a co-applicant on (with colleagues from across Atlantic Canada, led by Dr. Karen Harper at Dalhousie) has been awarded funding under the Atlantic Ecosystem Initiative. Watch this space for an advertisement for a grad student position!
