Welcome! We study native bees and the plants they rely on, with a special focus on the local, highly-threatened Cajun Prairie. We are also interested in how biodiversity affects the services that ecosystems provide for humans, especially pollination. Please use the links above to learn more about the lab's research, teaching, and how to join us. I'm especially excited to hear from UL undergraduates who want to do research in the lab!
If there is to be a community ecology, then our arsenal of methods must include
approaches other than controlled experiments.
