Welcome to the Integrative Ecology Lab at UTC

Dr. DeAnna Beasley, Assistant Professor

Mission Statement

In the Integrative Ecology Lab at the UTC, we investigate how organisms respond to human-driven environmental change. We use insects as our model species to explore developmental responses and changes in biodiversity in urban environments. In addition to research, we aim to engage students and the general public in ecological thinking with the hope of increasing the overall diversity of the field.
