Ymchwil - Research
Current research in the ADFER lab is examining the ecosystem effects of disturbances and restoration with a particular focus on the effects of fire and the management of peatland ecosystems. Particular attention is paid to the causes and consequences of variation in fire regimes. Understanding such processes means we are increasingly interested in above-below ground interactions and trait-based approaches to modeling community dynamics. Research projects in the lab has included sites in the U.K., the western United States, Malawi, Bolivia and of course O-H-I-O. We welcome enquiries from prospective students interested in working on any of these issues.
A list of potential independent research projects for undergraduate or Honors students is available. Please feel free to contact Matt to discuss these opportunities
