Welcome to the GLEL! Recent Publications

The Geomatics and Landscape Ecology Research Laboratory (GLEL) is a Carleton University Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI) laboratory founded in 2004. The focus of the GLEL is to advance habitat modelling/mapping and species conservation science through a synergistic integration of the research experience in Geomatics and Landscape Ecology of its members.


Dr. Lenore Fahrig (Department of Biology)
Dr. Doug King (Geography and Environmental Studies)
Dr. Kathryn Lindsay (Canadian Wildlife Service, Environment Canada)
Dr. Scott Mitchell (Geography and Environmental Studies)
