We are interested in understanding the links between aquatic ecosystems and society.
Based out of Arizona State University's Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability and School of Sustainability, the Wetland Ecosystem Ecology lab conducts research in the areas of wetland ecosystem ecology, urban ecology, sustainability science, biogeochemistry, urban ecohydrology, and ecosystems theory. We are affiliated with the National Science Foundation-funded Central Arizona Phoenix Long-Term Ecological Research Program (CAP LTER).
Our students, faculty and staff conduct research at wetland and urban sites across the metropolitan Phoenix area. Our projects and study areas include the following:
