About the lab

Welcome to Dr. Lisa Schulte Moore's lab in the Department of Natural Resource Ecology and Management at Iowa State University. We study human-landscape interactions, and are particularly curious about changing land use and its causes, consequences, and design. Through this research, we hope to improve the scientific basis for decisions that affect people and nature. Major projects include C-CHANGE, Horizon IIPEWI, and STRIPS. Dr. Schulte Moore is also co-director of the Bioeconomy Institute.
