Bossenbroek ResearchThe Applied Spatial Ecology Lab, directed by Dr. Jonathan Bossenbroek, focuses on applying the theories and concepts of landscape ecology to investigate issues such as invasive species biology, conservation biology and ecosystem management. The investigative approach of this lab is primarily based on predictive and geostatistical modeling and then linking these predictions with field and laboratory studies.

Through this approach we are currently undertaking projects on zebra mussels, emerald ash borer, yellow perch in Lake Erie, darters in the Ohio River basin and the phytoremediation of contaminated soils.
