Dr. Iannone's research and extension programs broadly focus on the ecology of human-dominated, residential landscapes. Within this context, his interest lie in spatial ecology, biological invasions, ecological restoration, and in how to design future developments so that they exhibit similar levels of ecological functionality as more natural ecosystems. Dr. Iannone's research projects are interdisciplinary and employ a wide range of geospatial and statistical tools, as well as observational, experimental, and modeling approaches.

Dr. Reisinger is interested in how human activity on land, coupled with interactions between urban ecosystems and ecological functioning, affect soil and water quality. His work in Florida is on the interactions between urban development and soil and water quality, particularly focusing on residential landscapes and the social-ecological coupling within these landscapes. Furthermore, he's interested in how urbanization affects contaminant export via urban streams, and the ecological processes (gross primary production, respiration, nutrient cycling) in streams that are affected by urban development.
