Ecological & Evolutionary Parasitology at UCS

Ecological ParasitologyOur lab's mission statement is to analyze and reveal the role  of infectious processes in ecosystem dynamics. We apply these principles to applications including the assessment of ecological functioning of estuarine ecosystems in the context of environmental mitigation and restoration projects, biological control of introduced marine pests, reducing losses to fisheries caused by parasitic diseases, and biological control of human schistosomiasis.

Project Leads: Armand Kuris, Kevin Lafferty, Ryan Hechinger
