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.

The GLEL website (and the Ottawa Breeding Bird Count website) tend to be in constant renovations. If you find a broken link, please feel free to email current webmaster Scott to let him know.

Two GLEL Graduate students have published a brochure on amphibian conservation. Download a copy here!

Joseph Bennett and Lenore Fahrig recently hosted a workshop on effective writing and getting papers published. Their slides are available here.
