Much of our field research is conducted at the 7,800 acre Yale Myers Forest located 70 miles northeast of New Haven, CT.  In addition to hundreds of amphibian breeding ponds and a wide diversity of upland habitats, Yale-Myers has a small wet lab and facilities for conducting laboratory and mesocosm experiments. There are accommodations for researchers on site.

Much of our experimental work is conducted within our outdoor research plot located on campus behind Greeley Laboratory in New Haven, CT.  Affectionately known as "The Compound", this fenced plot can house a variety of studies, ranging from table-top experiments to cattle tank mesocosms.
