Sustainable Human and Ecological Development (SHED)


SHED's ongoing research falls within three broad categories: urban landscapes, urban ecology, and stormwater management.  These projects encompass a diversity of topics including water conservation, water quality impacts, urban soils, spatial analysis, invasive species, and ecological interactions.  Our group employs observational, experimental, and modeling approaches to address these and other research topics.  Publications from past research can be found in our Resources section.
