The Technology in Ecology lab is a project in collaboration, working extensively within SERC and globally to to design and support technological innovation in the ecology field.

The Technology in Ecology lab is responsible for creating open-source, low-cost, arduino based sensor platforms to support ecological experiments at SERC and abroad. Using this approach, we develop and support several ongoing climate change experiments, including SMARTX, GENX, and MERIT.
