Jack Ewel is an emeritus professor in the Department of Biology.

Areas of Interest/Research

Most of my work deals with ecosystem processes, a broad topic that I most often addresses through experiments. I have worked on ecological succession in terrestrial, tropical ecosystems, with special emphasis on the early phases of regrowth and recovery following agriculture. I have also worked on invasive species, particularly the mechanisms that influence invasibility, and in restoration ecology. Currently, I am engaged in synthesis work involving long-term data sets from my work in tropical ecosystems, exploring the effects of life-form richness and stand turnover on ecosystem functioning.
