Additional Expertise

Below is a list of additional topics that interest the SHED Group, and that are relevant to urbanizing landscapes. We look to apply our expertise in these areas to new collaborations. Please contact us if you want to learn more about these topics.


  • Water chemistry
  • Soil physical and chemical properties
  • Biogeochemical transformations, such as nitrogen and phosphorus cycling
  • Functional responses to contaminants
  • Plant identification
  • Bacteria quantification


  • Soil compaction and infiltration rates
  • Plant identification and vegetation surveys
  • Ecological restoration design and impacts
  • Invasive species ecology and management
  • Nutrient and energy dynamics of ecosystems
  • Flow monitoring and water quality sampling
  • Species interactions/community ecology
