Noda Lab

Welcome to the Noda Lab

Welcome to the Noda Lab! We are seeking to understand population and community dynamics of rocky intertidal community, a model system for the study of population and community ecology. What are spatial and temporal patterns in distribution and abundance of these organisms? What mechanisms underlie the observed patterns in distribution and abundance? How can competing species coexist? What are the ecological consequences of rare events, such as large earthquake and introduction of exotic species? These are main questions that we are struggling to answer by investigating rocky intertidal organisms, including barnacles, mussels, gastropod molluscs and seaweeds.
