What We Do

Research in the Tewksbury lab comes in a wide range of flavors and scales. We work on projects that span scales from local to global, and our research stretches from natural history, ecology and evolutionary biology to the prediction and mitigation of global change impacts (climate change, species invasion, fragmentation). In many of these areas, we have whole programs geared toward translating research into effective policy. Our research is broadly integrative, building from our core strength in ecology and conservation science, and including work in evolutionary biology, plant and animal physiology, climate science and economics. In all our work, we are advocates of transparency, collaboration, and the democratization of science, and we are working at a number of scales to address ways in which science can more effectively serve society.
