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
