Landscape Ecology

JB Churchill working in the Landscape Ecology Lab at AL.Research emphasis in the Landscape Ecology AOS includes the use of mathematical, numerical and statistical methods to establish the fundamental principles governing natural and human-altered ecosystems.

Current studies include the analysis of groundwater extraction and resulting effects on overlying vegetation, the interaction of dispersal and disturbance on patterns of community diversity, and the consequence of land-use change on extinction risks of endangered fish and mammalian species.
