Studying the assembly, maintenance, and disassembly of ecological communities

Welcome to the Baiser Lab of community ecology where we are interested in the how, why, when, and where of ecological communities. We take empirical and theoretical approaches with a wide-range of organisms and systems to explore how species composition, traits, phylogenetic diversity, and interaction structure change over space and time.
