The Arthur R. Marshall Jr. Ecological Sciences Laboratory


These are our provisional web pages. If you find any malfunctioning links or other errors please let us know.

 The Arthur R. Marshall Jr. Ecological Sciences Laboratory is located in the Department of Zoology at the University of Florida. It was founded to commemorate Florida ecologist and activist Art Marshall, who fought to restore the ecology of the Everglades.

 


Research

The laboratory is involved in large scale ecology, particularly disturbance ecology. We focus on ecological processes and their interactions. We view ecology as an attempt to understand complex evolving adaptive systems. Currently, humans are the main large-scale ecological structuring process, so our work necessarily also focuses upon the links between humanity and nature.
