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.

October 2020

The lab had a flurry of paper acceptances this fall – some of which were announced on previous posts. Now we have links to most of them. They feature papers by alumni Tegan Padgett and Rachel Wigle, as well as from our past guest visitor Jennifer Doering. Finally there are two papers from the TERG group, one led by WEEL lab member Julianna and one led by my fellow PI Dr. Leroux. References are below:

  1. Balluffi-Fry J, SJ Leroux, YF Wiersma, TR Heckford, M Rizzuto, IC Richmond, E Vander Wal. Accepted. A multiscale test of selection for plant elemental variation by moose reveals individual-based trade-offs of forage quantity and quality. Ecology and Evolution.
