{{DISPLAYTITLE:Lennon Lab: Microbial Ecology and Evolution}} __NOTOC__
Research in the Lennon Lab focuses on the factors that generate and maintain microbial diversity in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems.
+
We are interested in the factors that generate and maintain microbial biodiversity.  
  
We study how environmental variability structures microbial communities, and how this in turn affects ecosystem processes.  
+
In turn, we seek to understand the implications of microbial diversity for ecosystem functioning.

Latest revision as of 07:13, 18 December 2014

We are interested in the factors that generate and maintain microbial biodiversity.

In turn, we seek to understand the implications of microbial diversity for ecosystem functioning.

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

Visit our lab website for publications along with a description of people, research, and teaching.

Data and code for some of our projects can be found on GitHub
