Welcome to the Matzek Lab!
We're interested in how ecological restoration can sustain the provision of multiple ecosystem services to humans, including carbon sequestration, nutrient cycling, forage production, and recreation. We approach all problems with an interdisciplinary viewpoint informed by economics, policy, and the behavioral sciences. The lab also researches plant invasions, with an eye toward managing exotic invaders efficiently and with appropriate impacts. We are committed to creating fruitful partnerships with land managers and restoration practitioners to make real conservation impacts.
