Our Research

The Ag-Urban Landscape Ecology Lab conducts research in the Cleveland Pocket Prairies and other urban landscapes. These research studies help identify which management strategies provide ecosystem services, a measure of the environment’s value and contributions to our health and well-being.

Some examples of ecosystem services include:

  • pollination
  • water infiltration
  • pest and disease control
  • climate regulation

These services directly impact our ability to produce food, have safe drinking water, clean air, and healthy soil.
