What's New:

The Northeast Regional Invasive Species & Climate Change (RISCC) Managment network has a new website: risccnetwork.org. Students and staff from the spatial ecology lab lead this network and have created much of the content that you'll find on the RISCC website.

About the spatial ecology lab

Spatial ecology and biogeography use geographic patterns of species across landscapes and regions to uncover patterns that help us understand what influences distribution. We focus primarily on non-native invasive plants, with a goal of better understanding the geographies of invasion risk. Our research investigates how global change interacts with species invasion to affect native ecosystems. The above image highlights potential shifts in kudzu distribution with temperature warming.
