Lenore Fahrig is a Professor of Biology and co-director of the Geomatics and Landscape Ecology Research Laboratory (GLEL) at Carleton University.

Lenore and her students research the effects of landscape structure on biodiversity and the abundance, distribution and persistence of wildlife populations. Study species include frogs and toads, turtles, birds, mammals, insects, other arthropods, plants and lichens. Landscape structure includes the amounts of various kinds of land cover in a landscape (e.g., forest, wetland, roads, crop fields), and the spatial arrangement of these cover types.
