According to ESA’s announcement, Wu’s most notable work is in “landscape ecology, urban ecology, and sustainability science, particularly in the areas of hierarchical patch dynamics, spatial scaling, habitat fragmentation and biodiversity, ecological impacts of urbanization, and landscape sustainability.”
Wu regularly teaches ASU classes about landscape ecology and sustainability science. He has written at least 14 books and 295 research papers. Among his many activities and accolades, Wu has been the editor-in-chief for the journal Landscape Ecology since 2005. He is also an affiliated faculty of the Center for Biodiversity Outcomes at ASU.
