The Land Change and Ecosystem Science (LanCES) initiative at Texas State University is a multidisciplinary research network designed to integrate existing capacities in scientific and geospatial data collection and processing, modeling, and data analysis to document and examine land cover and land use change (LCLUC) in Texas.  Texas is a "natural laboratory" for investigating the causes and drivers of LCLUC due to its great geographic extent, biologic and demographic diversity.
