Tilman Lab

The Tilman Lab's research focuses on ways to sustainably meet global human needs for food, energy and a livable environment. The Lab's long-term ecological experiments, at Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve, focus on the impacts on ecosystems of human-induced environmental changes, including the loss of biodiversity, nitrogen deposition, habitat destruction and climate change. Agricultural research focuses on how to provide secure, sufficient and equitable food to all people of all nations while preserving biodiversity and minimizing agricultural impacts on water quality and climate change.
