We conduct research, graduate education, and outreach, primarily in forested ecosystems. Most of our work involves investigating spatial patterns and ecological processes, often at broad scales.

Work done in our laboratory seeks to understand the basis of sustainable forest landscapes. Projects includes forest ecosystem field studies, forest landscape modeling of land use and climate change effects, GIS and remote sensing applications, analysis of the effects of forest management practices and natural disturbances on ecosystems, the influence of landscape-scale factors on wildlife populations, and effects of land use and historical factors on current landscape patterns and ecosystem processes.

For more specific information about our work, please visit our projects and people web pages. Lab publications, most available to download in PDF format, can be found on our publications page. Also see our landscape ecology page for more information on the discipline of landscape ecology in general and on landscape ecology instruction at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Prospective graduate students should visit our graduate study page for more information regarding research opportunities in our lab, as well as links for graduate admission and visiting the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
