|Our lab studies the generation, maintenance, and consequences of biodiversity. Currently we are investigating the mechanisms underlying microbial diversity patterns and the consequences of this diversity for ecosystem functioning, particularly in the face of global change. The lab uses a combination of approaches, from genetic surveys of natural communities to field experiments and microcosm studies. We study a variety of systems including grassland bacteria and fungi and marine viruses.|
