In the Sheldon Lab in the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, we study the patterns and processes that determine the distribution of species and use this information to predict impacts of anthropogenic change on species and ecological communities. We work across broad latitudinal and elevational gradients and integrate the fields of ecology, physiology, behavior, and evolution. Though we work with a variety of taxa, much of our experimental research is with dung beetles.
