Landscape Ecology and Conservation Biology.

Research Focus

Research in the Laboratory for Landscape and Conservation Ecology (LLACE) is conducted at the interface of landscape ecology and conservation biology, and is distinguished by a combination of theoretical and empirical investigations into the ecological consequences of habitat loss, fragmentation, and land management. Research in the LLACE spans a wide range of scales and a diverse array of systems, from the predictive modelling of species' extinction risk and the risk of invasive or disease spread in fragmented landscapes; to the investigation of arthropod responses to habitat fragmentation in experimental landscapes; to the response of vertebrate populations to grassland-management practices in the Flint Hills of eastern Kansas and in the Brazilian Cerrado.
