ECOLOGY ACROSS SCALES

Oct. 19, 2021

New work by our great team in the Gibert Lab (mostly students) scales up from traits to predict temperature effects across levels of organization—from populations to ecosystems. Out now in PNAS!

CLIMATE, CARBON, & MICROBES

Nov. 8, 2019

 

The Gibert Lab has been awarded a Department of Energy grant to study the impacts of climate change and microbial food web dynamics on carbon storage in Sphagnum moss ecosystems.

MOVED TO DUKE!

Nov. 1, 2019

 

I've started a new postdoc at Duke with Jean Philippe Gibert! We'll be working on food webs and eco-evolutionary dynamics in microbes.
