Welcome to the Essenberg lab’s website! We study plant-pollinator interactions, focusing especially on how pollinator foraging behavior shapes plant ecology and evolution and, conversely, how plants manipulate pollinators’ behavior to improve their own fitness. We work both in the field and in the lab, and our research also provides scope for theoretical projects.
You can read stories about our past projects, find out what we are working on now, and if you are a Bates student, find out what kinds of things you could do in the lab here. You can also read more about who we are here.
