Welcome to the Micheli Lab at Hopkins Marine Station, Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability!

Research in Marine Community Ecology

Our lab works to find answers to these questions:

  • What is the role of species interactions and how do they combine with physical factors in shaping communities?
  • What diversity levels can occur under different conditions and what are the implications for variation in diversity for how communities function?
  • How do communities withstand disturbance and what affects their resilience?
  • How do we put this all together to design effective management strategies to conserve marine ecosystems?
