Welcome to the Heppell Lab webpage! We are a diverse group of ecologists working on both basic and applied research in the fields of marine ecology, conservation biology, population ecology, and fisheries science. Our students work from the Oregon Coast to the Colombian Pacific to the Gulf of Alaska, specializing in habitat assessment, species interactions, population distribution, and response of populations to human perturbations. Our lab members play active roles in finding solutions to local, regional, and international conservation and management problems.
