Bio/Research

Research in the lab addresses a diversity of fundamental questions in plant ecology. We take a broad approach to research, with interest in plant behavioural ecology, competition, plant-pollinator interactions, insect and mammalian herbivory, evolutionary and functional ecology, climate change, and mychorrhizae.

We generally use a 'kick-the-tires' experimental approach in both natural communities (e.g. native grasslands), and mesocosms (e.g. growth rooms and greenhouses) to test questions at the levels of the individual, population, and community. We incorporate techniques of molecular ecology into many of our studies.
