Welcome to Karst Lab

We study belowground ecology to inform how we restore degraded ecosystems. Our research focuses on belowground interactions between plants, microbes and their environment to understand their ecology.

Through a combination of field, lab and greenhouse experiments, we apply this knowledge to recover degraded ecosystems.


Lab news

September 8, 2017 Welcome to Ariel Brown and Josh Wasyliw, both new MSc students in the lab, and James Franklin, who is starting a PhD. Two of our field techs are sticking around too! Dana Hopfauf is doing an undergrad research project and Chloe will continue to help organize the lab and deal with samples. Good luck to Angie in her upcoming year.
