Welcome to the Ecosystem Ecology Laboratory of Dr. Jason Keller in the Schmid College of Science and Technology at Chapman University.  Research in our laboratory is focused on understanding how ecosystems function and how these functions will respond to ongoing global change.  Most of our work explores anaerobic carbon cycling in wetland ecosystems, ranging from northern peatlands to coastal salt marshes.  Undergraduate collaborators are heavily involved in this research and gain first-hand experience in conducting and presenting scientific research.
