Welcome to the Ruehl lab at CSU

We study population, community, and evolutionary ecology.  Current research focuses on using a food web perspective to understand how predators influence population dynamics, community structure, and ecosystem processes along abiotic gradients commonly altered by human activities.  The lab employs observational studies and surveys to design biologically relevant lab and field experiments guided by ecological and evolutionary theory.  Our work focuses on freshwater ecosystems.
