Welcome to 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?
