Tseng lab: Adaptation to changing environments
We are fascinated with the natural world around us and how this world will look in the future, in light of ongoing habitat and climate change. We study the evolutionary and ecological processes that help or hinder responses to changing environments. We test ecological and evolutionary theory using laboratory and field experiments with aquatic plankton communities, insects, and parasites. We are particularly interested in how species interactions (plant-herbivore, host-parasite, predator-prey etc) affect population and community responses to environmental change. See more here.
