Ecosystem Science and Management Research Facilities

Ecology Lab

Shared UW facility. Berry Center 115. For initial processing of field samples, including weighing, sieving, burning, separating or homogenizing, etc. Includes microscopes, ovens, fume hoods and other equipment. Visit www.uwyo.edu/berrycenter/facilities-programs/ecology-lab/index.html to schedule use.


Environmental Simulation Lab

UW Core Facility. Agriculture C 1020. The ESL is a mesocosm-scale, climate controlled, laboratory facility to advance integrated research in the areas of hydrology, ecology, and earth system science, with direct application to problems in agriculture and disturbed land reclamation. Contact: Ginger Paige (gpaige@uwyo.edu).


Insect Rearing Lab

ESM Laboratory. Agriculture C 4026. Various insect species are reared and samples are processed in this lab. Contact: Tim Collier (tcollier@uwyo.edu) or Scott Shaw (braconid@uwyo.edu).


Landscape Ecology and Ecological Genetics Lab

ESM Laboratory. Agriculture C 2020. We address applied questions of ecological complexity at landscape scales utilizing tools from landscape ecology and population genetics - cool spatial and genetic stuff. Contact: Melanie Murphy (melanie.murphy@uwyo.edu).


Macromolecular Analysis Core

UW Core Facility. Berry Center 320. The Macromolecular Core Equipment Facility is dedicated to Proteomic and small molecule analysis for life science, chemistry and other researchers. Contact David Perry (dperry@uwyo.edu, 766-3408) to schedule use.


Plant Ecology Lab

ESM Laboratory. Agriculture C 4025. What you can do. Specimens-based insect taxonomy, systematics, ecology, and evolutionary research. Contact person: Scott Shaw (braconid@uwyo.edu).


Shared Equipment Lab

ESM Laboratory. Agriculture C 2023. This lab contains equipment available for shared use. Presently there is a carbon/nitrogen analyzer, a bomb calorimeter, and other miscellaneous equipment. Contact: John Tanaka (jtanaka@uwyo.edu) to be put in touch with the appropriate researcher.


Shrub Ecology Lab

ESM Laboratory. Agriculture C 2033. What you can do. Contact: Ann Hild (AnnHild@uwyo.edu).


Soil Chemistry Lab

ESM Laboratory. Agriculture C 1024. Research conducted on chemical, physical, and biological properties of soils that influence processes and mechanisms related to environmental quality issues such as land restoration, pollution science, nutrient cycling and ecosystem sustainability. Contact: George Vance (GFV@uwyo.edu).


Soil Microbiology Lab

ESM Laboratory. UW Greenhouse (30th and Harney), Rooms 5 and 6. Light microscopy and photography, bioassays for soil microorganisms, and analysis of symbiotic associations between plants and soil organisms (nitrogen fixing and mycorrhizal associations). Contact Steve Williams (sewms@uwyo.edu) to schedule use.


Soil Resource Lab

ESM Laboratory. Agriculture C 48. What you can do. Contact: Jay Norton (jnorton4@uwyo.edu).


Soil Physics Lab

ESM Laboratory. Agriculture C 1026. We seek to quantify water flow, heat transport, solute transport, and gas transport processes in soils through experiments and computer modeling. Contact: Thijs Kelleners (tkellene@uwyo.edu).


Stable Isotope Facility

UW Core Facility. Berry Center 214. The University of Wyoming Stable Isotope Facility (UWSIF) analyzes carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and hydrogen stable isotopes for students, postdoctoral researchers, and faculty from the University of Wyoming, other universities, and various government and private institutions. Contact Chandelle Macdonald (cmacdon1@uwyo.edu, 766-6373) to schedule use.


Water Quality Lab

ESM Laboratory. Agriculture C 1021. You can learn and get hands on experience with state-of-the art remediation technology for water and air pollutants. Contact: K.J. Reddy (katta@uwyo.edu).


Watershed-Hydrology Lab

ESM Laboratory. Agriculture C 19. We conduct field research into hydrological processes at the watershed scale at field sites throughout Wyoming and the West. The lab is fully equipped to carry out investigations into surface and shallow subsurface hydrological processes. Contacts: Scott Miller (snmiller@uwyo.edu) and Ginger Paige (gpaige@uwyo.edu).


Wildlife Habitat Restoration Ecology Lab

ESM Laboratory. Agriculture C 2005 and 31. We seek to bridge basic and applied aspects of habitat restoration ecology to better understand how to restore the functionality of and mitigate impacts to forest and rangeland wildlife habitats following large-scale anthropogenic and natural disturbances. A particular emphasis of our research is concerned with restoration efforts relative to species inhabiting sagebrush steppe ecosystems. Contact: Jeff Beck (JLBeck@uwyo.edu).
