Landscape Ecology

Development encroachment near Prince William Forest Park
Many National Parks in the National Capital Region are adjacent to high levels of development, as illustrated here at the boundary of Prince William Forest Park in Virginia.



The landscape ecologist studies spatial variation of landscapes, at a variety of scales. She assists parks by facilitating large-scale natural resource projects that affect multiple parks on issues including landscape connectivity, changes in species ranges, watersheds, and interpreting the impacts of environmental change and vulnerability of natural resources.
