Welcome to the Silliman Lab

In my research, I use observations of natural communities throughout the world as primary inspiration for my study questions.  Most generally, my teaching and research efforts are focused on community ecology of salt marshes and rocky shores, conservation of coastal wetlands and reef fish populations, physical-forcing and disease-mediated control of food web dynamics, plant-animal interactions and evolution of fungal farming behavior.
