Here at SpEEL we work on an alarming diversity of things.  It’s a broad church, but our work involves ecology, evolution, and how processes play out in space.  The Lab’s work is divided roughly into applied (conservation), and pure (theoretical) arms.  We are motivated by basic questions in ecology and evolution, but we are paying close attention to how this work might have real outcomes.

We reside in the School of BioSciences at the University of Melbourne.  The lab is headed up by Ben Phillips.
