How can understanding the causes and consequences of ecological diversity help us better manage natural resources?

This question unites the projects of the Gosnell Lab at Baruch College. Our research focuses on field work in coastal systems such as oyster reefs and salt marshes and quantitative projects including analysis of big-data, model development, and meta-analyses. You can read more about our current projects under the research tab.

Our work on managed systems offers chances to communicate with stakeholders on various projects, and the lab also coordinate outreach opportunities focused on K-12 education. You can read more about these efforts under the outreach tab. We've also developed resources for use in college and K - 12 classrooms that you can find under the Teaching Resources tab.

There are openings for new students (undergraduate and graduate) in the lab who share similar interests. Interested students should contact; you can also find more information here.
