The Lab of Landscape Ecology and Conservation Biology (LLECB)

What we do

The Lab of Landscape Ecology and Conservation Biology studies a wide range of topics in ecology and related disciplines that are directly linked to applications in conservation and land use. Most conservation challenges involve species whose fates are influenced by numerous factors in the landscape level. The Lab addresses these challenges not only through basic research in ecology, but also through synthesis and application of research results in land and resource management, education, and public outreach. Increasingly, we are involved in efforts to develop and test novel approaches for integrating rigorous science into planning and policy development, particularly as it relates to the restoration, conservation, and sustainable management of public lands.  Learn more about the LLECB.
