Welcome to the Kembel Lab at UQAM

This is the website for the lab group of Steven Kembel, Canada Research Chair and Assistant Professor in the Department of Biological sciences at the University of Quebec at Montreal (UQAM).

Research in the lab focuses on understanding the ecological and evolutionary processes responsible for patterns of plant and microbial biodiversity and function, and plant-microbe interactions. We use approaches including field work in diverse ecosystems, experiments, high-throughput environmental DNA sequencing and bioinformatics to address these questions.
