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.

November 2019

November kicks off with a paper acceptance. This one is led by Matteo from the Leroux lab. While not one of my grad students, Matteo is a member of the TERG team, of which I am also part. This paper is the first graduate student-led publication to come out of TERG. Congratulations Matteo!

The citation is:

Rizzuto M, Leroux SJ, Vander Wal E, Wiersma YF, Heckford TR, Balluffi-Fry J. Accepted. Patterns and potential drivers of intraspecific variability in the body C, N, P composition of a terrestrial consumer, the snowshoe hare (Lepus americanus). Ecology and Evolution.

I had a fabulous time this month leading a really enthusiastic group of about 20 people from Nature NL on a hike to learn about lichen. Thanks Sara Jenkins for these amazing photos! It was a cold, wet morning but we had a great time and even introduced people to Boreal Felt Lichen!


Congratulations to Tom on passing his Honours thesis defense!
