Welcome to Caz Taylor’s Spatial Ecology lab in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Tulane University. We investigate the spatial dynamics of populations, communities and food webs. Theoretical research includes the development and analysis of Population Network Models and connectivity of migratory populations. Current research projects include the Movement Ecology of Tree Swallows, Migratory Shorebird Ecology along coastal Gulf of Mexico and Spatial Ecology of Blue Crabs in the Gulf of Mexico.
