Lab Members

Welcome to the Lubchenco/Menge Lab

Our lab has diverse interests that are united by a common goal: understanding the dynamics of natural ecological communities. Our insights into community regulation, biodiversity, and global change are generated primarily by research on rocky shores and marine ecosystems. We approach questions at a variety of scales and with a diversity of tools ranging from biochemical studies at the suborganismal level, to controlled field experiments in intertidal communities, to biogeographic comparisons among the coasts of Oregon, New Zealand, and Chile.
