Research projects currently ongoing in the lab fall into six main themes. They range from basic ecological questions to applied issues in fisheries management. To address these questions we are collecting new data from the field, conducting controlled laboratory experiments, developing new mathematical models, and using meta-analysis of data drawn from earlier research.
