The Marine Landscape Ecology Lab is part of the Division of Science and Environmental Policy 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 intertidal and subtidal marine communities. Our research integrates questions and techniques derived from the fields of marine and landscape ecology to examine the coastal environment across multiple scales of ecological organization.
