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

Interested in joining the lab? 

We are recruiting a PhD student for Jan. or May 2015.


Congratulations to Dani on her successful MSc defense!
