Ecosystem Services and Conservation
Lisa Mandle is developing and improving models of terrestrial Ecosystem Services and Conservation for InVEST and for applications in Latin America. She works with the Natural Capital Project team and its partners to assess and develop plans to mitigate the effects of development projects such as mining and transportation infrastructure on Ecosystem Services and Conservation. Lisa is an ecologist and conservation biologist who studies the impact of land management decisions on biodiversity and the provision and distribution of Ecosystem Services and Conservation. Her previous work combined field studies and modeling to examine trade-offs between non-timber forest product management and biodiversity conservation in India to inform local management decisions. She received a doctoral degree in botany from the University of Hawaii Manoa and holds bachelor's degrees in biology and anthropology from Brown University.
