Welcome to the Marine Community Ecology lab at LSU!


Marine ecosystems are impacted by anthropogenic stressors such as climate change, habitat loss, and overfishing. An interdisciplinary approach is necessary to address real world problems related to sustainability. Our research integrates laboratory, field, and modeling approaches to address the question: how do habitat loss, ocean acidification, and climate change alter interactions between members of an ecological community, and what are the implications for humanity?
