Welcome to our website!
Research in the Lindo lab integrates community ecology, ecosystem ecology, and taxonomy to study the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem function in Canadian soil systems. We use a natural model system of moss, microbes, and microarthropods (called the bryosphere) to ask ecosystem-scale questions in the field and under controlled greenhouse environments.
General Research Interests
Processes that generate, maintain or alter patterns of biodiversity
Causes and consequences of biodiversity loss
Relationship between biodiversity and terrestrial ecosystem function
Summer has flown by!
Congratulations to Dr. Catherine Dieleman who successfully defended in July. Catherine is now a Postdoctoral Fellow with Merritt Turetsky at the University of Guelph.
Also congratulations to Rosa Del Giudice who successfully defended her MSc thesis on boreal plant litter decomposition in August. Great work Rosa!
A big welcome to Carlos Barreto joining the Lindo Lab as a PhD student in September.
Lastly, special thanks and best of luck to Sean, Chris and Liz who worked as summer research students, and are off on their next adventure.
