|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.
