Research in the Youngsteadt Urban Ecology Lab works at the interface of urbanization and climate change. Our goal is to understand and manage ecological responses to anthropogenic stressors, such as changes in climate, air quality, and habitat structure. Focal study systems include invertebrates and plant-insect interactions, and approaches incorporate field studies, historical datasets, and manipulative experiments in the lab and field. The lab is committed to public outreach and Extension based on research results.
