Welcome to the Aquatic Ecology and Climate Change lab at the University of Maine-Farmington

We are broadly interested in freshwater organisms and ecosystems in the context of a changing world. Our study systems range from small lakes to large rivers, and current projects focus on species life history diversity and feedbacks between aquatic communities and changing habitats.  Teaching and mentoring in the AECC lab emphasize training students to develop ecological questions and equipping them with the skills necessary for research across disciplines.

The AECC lab is committed to equity and environmental justice. Students from backgrounds under-represented in the sciences are particularly encouraged to join the lab.
