The human population growth projected for Florida and elsewhere is likely to result in increased land use change and development, potentially leading to negative impacts on both the availability of important resources such as water and on the ability of remnant natural areas to function and provide ecosystem services. My research and extension program utilizes geospatial tools, as well as other analytical and interdisciplinary approaches, to address this complex issue. The goal of my program is to devise and promote real-world strategies: (1) to mitigate against the negative environmental impacts of current and future land development and (2) to better manage and conserve natural resources within mixed urban, rural, and natural areas associated with current and future land development.
