Welcome to the Marine Landscape Ecology Lab

Lab logo

The Marine Landscape Ecology Lab is part of the School of Natural Sciences at California State University, Monterey Bay. We specialize in the use of geospatial technologies and spatial statistics to study the relationship between habitat complexity and patterns of species distribution and abundance in marine communities. Our research integrates questions and techniques derived from the fields of marine and landscape ecology to examine the marine environment across multiple scales of ecological organization.
