Welcome to the Worm Lab!



The Sustainability Studies Earthworm Ecotoxicology Lab embraces student-run research. This lab: 1) teaches students how to conduct important and novel science based in soil ecology and ecotoxicology, 2) teaches students how to communicate their work and findings orally, with posters, and via peer-reviewed scientific journal articles, 3) conducts research based on earthworms, soil, and soil microbes. Our students present their work at local high schools, at Stony Brook’s URECA fair, and at local graduate and undergraduate science fairs. We submit our work for publication, and our graduates have gone on to study at Fordham University, MIT, Columbia, University of Maine, Stony Brook University School of Public Health and others.
