Dean Urban is an expert landscape ecologist that focuses on the agents and implications of pattern in forested landscapes. Increasingly, his research is in what has been termed "theoretical applied ecology," developing new analytic approaches to applications of immediate practical concern such as conservation planning. A hallmark of his lab is the integration of field studies, spatial analysis, and simulation modeling in extrapolating our fine-scale empirical understanding of environmental issues to the larger space and time scales of management and policy.
The Oosting Lecture is an annual presentation by distinguished scholars with an international reputation in the field of Ecology.
The endowed lecture honors the preeminent plant ecologist, Henry J. Oosting, and is presented by the University Program in Ecology, the Nicholas School of the Environment, and the Department of Biology.
