The Zacherl lab’s research interests center around topics in marine ecology including larval behavior, settlement and recruitment dynamics, population connectivity, restoration ecology, and native-non-native species interactions.
Current research projects include:

Restoration – We have been engaged in science-based restoration projects with the Olympia oyster, Ostrea lurida, in southern California since 2010.

Monitoring – We have been monitoring recruitment dynamics and population dynamics of oysters since 2005.
