The work in my lab roughly concerns the overlap of three fundamental components of any ecological system, Behavior, Interactions between species, and Spatio-temporal Environmental Structure. The interplay between these factors determine the dynamics, longevity, and diversity of the system. In general, I prefer to focus on small mammals as they are ubiquitous, energetic, and just plain cute. Their roles in shaping the rest of any ecosystem are likely to be large but poorly understood.
