Research in the Lennon Lab focuses on the factors that generate and maintain microbial diversity in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems.

We study how environmental variability structures microbial communities, and how this in turn affects ecosystem processes.

The Lennon Lab is in the Department of Biology at Indiana University
