We work in multiple settings and at multiple spatial scales to understand how natural systems are assembled and how they respond to (and recover from) anthropogenic disturbance. Although large-scale, long-term field experiments are the foundation for much of this research, we are increasingly interested in the use of DNA metabarcoding to elucidate food-web structure and enable mechanistic inference.
