The Coupled Human And Organismal Systems (CHAOS) Lab
Aquatic Conservation at SUNY ESF
The CHAOS lab is headed by Dr. Joshua Drew, Ph.D. and located in the Department of Environmental Biology at the State University of New York's College of Environmental Science and Forestry. Here we use multiple tools, ranging from systematics and taxonomy, to biogeography, to ethnography, in exploring the relationships among biodiversity, local communities, and conservation. Our goal is to create science that supports equitable, effective, and efficient conservation in explicitly feminist and anti-colonial frameworks.
