ABOUT THE LAB

Welcome to the website for the Powell Lab, based in the Department of Biological Sciences at the George Washington University. We work on biodiversity questions at the interface of evolutionary ecology and community ecology. We use ants to tackle these questions. We are particularly interested in the intimately connected questions of how ecological interactions have shaped trait diversification, and how species traits influence the assembly of contemporary communities. For more information about our work, please follow the links above. And for an update on our recent activites, check out the feed of “Photos From The Field” below (via the @powell_lab Instagram account). If you have further questions about our work, or want to know about opportunities to join us, please get in touch.
