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.
