WELCOME TO KAREN BEARD'S LAB WEBSITE
Research conducted in my lab spans a broad range of topics but primarily focuses on species interactions and subsequent impacts on ecosystem processes, especially involving non-native species and climate change. We currently have research in Alaska, Hawaii, Brazil, and Utah. We work with a wide range of taxa from amphibians to birds to plants to microbes. The ultimate goal of our research is to improve decisions about how to manage habitats and species in the face of global change.
