Welcome to The Biogeography Lab

The Biogeography Lab has conducted research on the ecology, distribution and conservation of species and ecosystems using field studies, geographic information systems and remote sensing since 1991. Through our research we help planners and resource managers protect, manage and restore productive and diverse ecosystems in California, the U.S. and internationally. The Lab is directed by Frank W. Davis.
