Urban landscapes are growing quickly: by 2030, and as a result, globally, urbanization has become one of the largest causes for habitat degradation and loss; habitat that remains is dramatically altered with respect to a variety of parameters, including light, noise, temperature, and precipitation regimes. Here I present three sets of studies investigating these impacts on the behavior a
Spatial tools are now ubiquitous in ecological research. In this talk, I present case studies that illustrate some trends emerging as a result of the availability and application of these tools to better understand pattern and process on the landscape.

Bacterial symbioses are ubiquitous and provide eukaryotes a broad array of resources and services. Yet the benefits that these symbionts deliver to hosts are not automatic or fixed. Bacteria have a tremendous evolutionary advantage over hosts in terms of generation time and population size.
