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 forest 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
We welcome the return of Matt Turnbull as Research Assistant to the Lindo Lab in Nov. 2015!
