In the Hawkes lab, we address broad questions in plant, microbial, and ecosystem ecology that are important for understanding fundamental community and ecosystem dynamics. We are also interested in how communities and ecosystems are affected by biological invasions, altered climate, and other environmental changes. We use a variety of genes to ecosystems approaches for experiments in the field, greenhouse, and lab. Examples of ongoing research projects in the lab include:
