About us

Welcome to the Research Lab of Nick Barber, Assistant Professor of biology at San Diego State University.  We study how environmental and biotic factors influence community assembly and affect the outcomes of trophic interactions. 

We work in restored, managed, and unmanaged ecosystems, and a major goal of our research is to generate basic ecological knowledge while contributing to the conservation and sustainable management of habitats.
