Welcome to Dr. Tom Albright's
Laboratory for Conservation Biogeography at the University of Nevada, Reno!
Our lab's research is about interactions between environmental change, plants and animals, and space. We employ a variety of remote sensing platforms, field data, GIS, spatial analysis, and statistical and mechanistic modeling. While much recent research has focused on climate change and birds, we’ve also worked with mammals, invasive plants, evapotranspiration, topo- and micro-climate diversity, and protected area assessment. Projects generally focus in the Western US, but we’ve also worked in China and more recently in Nicaragua, Central America.
In addition to research, we also highly value teaching and learning, contributing to policy discussions, communicating science, and diversity/inclusion in what we collectively do.
