Kathy Martin’s Lab
The Martin lab is physically located in the Forest Sciences Buiding on the Vancouver campus of The University of British Columbia, in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Our position within UBC is: TheDepartment of Forest Sciences in the Faculty of Forestry, but we are also part of the Centre for Applied Conservation Research (CACR), which is a collection of conservation researchers from several departments at UBC, as well as other universities in western Canada.
There are currently 2 Doctoral students, 1 Masters student, and two Post-doctoral Fellows in the lab. All lab students, and their projects, are listed on Kathy Martin’s faculty webpage, as well as the CACR webpages. Alice Boyle (post-doc) also has her own webpage.
