Lab overview

The Tropical Rainforest Ecology Lab (TREcoL) focuses on tropical rainforest biodiversity, its conservation and impacts endured from climate and land-use change. Research and interests span a diversity of topics, including plant-animal interactions, animal movements, community ecology, behavioural ecology, NTFPs and more. We have a focus on Amazonia and the Tropical Andes, but students work in a variety of places and settings across the tropics.
