The Farrer Lab

Community Ecology, Global Change Biology, Plant-Microbe Interactions


We are community ecologists based at Tulane University. We examine the interactions that structure plant and microbial communities in space and time, and how global change and land use patterns alter these interactions with consequences for biodiversity and ecosystem function. We use field surveys and experiments and a combination of statistical modeling, population modeling, genomics, and GIS techniques. We work in wetlands, grasslands, and alpine ecosystems.
