In the Wilsey lab, we are interested in the ecology of grasslands. We are studying how changes in species diversity influence community stability and ecosystem process rates (i.e. ecosystem services). Information from our studies will be useful in the management and restoration of grassland ecosystems. Research topics include (1) biodiversity and ecosystem process rates in native and exotic communities, (2) Is plant diversity an important predictor of ecosystem process rates? and (3) species diversity partitioning.
