Research

research overview

  • Dr. Wessman's research program seeks to gain insights on the dynamics between landscape structure and ecosystem functioning, with focus on understanding ecosystem resilience and response to multiple disturbances. Dr. Wessman's approach involves field studies, remote sensing methodologies investigating temporal and spatial heterogeneity in ecosystem properties, and landscape and ecosystem theory. Research projects include: Subalpine forest response to multiple disturbances; carbon sequestration in post-disturbance landscapes; ecosystem resilience; and social-ecological systems in urban environments.
