Cadotte Urban Biodiversity & Ecosystem Services Lab (CUBES)
The Cadotte lab at the University of Toronto -Scarborough focuses on basic questions about species coexistence, evolution and how multi-species interactions shape ecological communities. We apply basic concepts and theory to understanding how human impacts shape biodiversity patterns and how biodiversity in turn affects the delivery of ecosystem services. To do this we link together:
-Processes operating below and above ground.
-The functional traits of species
-Plant interations with herbivores and pathogens
-Processes operating at multiple scales
