Welcome to the ERSAM Lab led by Dr. Kyla Dahlin in the Department of Geography, Environment, and Spatial Sciences at Michigan State University. We study a number of different ecological topics all related to the idea of using geospatial tools to better inform plant ecology and Earth system science. The three current foci of our research are on 3D heterogeneity in temperate forest ecosystems, spatio-temporal vegetation patterns in savanna-type ecosystems, and connections between biodiversity and geodiversity. Here are some of the questions we are excited about:
Working Groups that Work
Running a working group? How are you going to ensure that all voices are heard? We provide links to lots of good ideas and some new ideas, too.
