Applied Spatial Ecology Laboratory

Professor of Ecology


My Lab focuses on employing the theories and concepts of landscape ecology to investigate invasive species biology, conservation biology and ecosystem management. Currently we are undertaking the following projects:
  • Spread of invasive species in the Great Lakes and the Caribbean
  • Restoration plan for lake sturgeon in the Maumee River
  • Invasive species management plan for the Oak Openings Region
  • Impact of conservation practices on nutrient loss
