Welcome to Dr. Lisa Schulte Moore's lab at Iowa State University. We study human-landscape interactions, and are particularly interested in the causes, consequences, and design of land-use change. Through this research, we hope to improve the scientific basis for decisions that impact people and our natural resources. We hope to foster resilient, sustainable ecosystems and prosperous human communities. You can find information about our members, research, and outreach on this website. Contact us with questions.
Lisa will be speaking today at the 2019 Soil Health Conference in Ames. Her talk is titled, "Integration of Perennials in Row Cropping Systems Benefits to Soil Health,"
