Ecosystem Health in the Age of Antibiotics

The discovery of antibiotic compounds is one of the most prolific scientific advances in history. Yet, our growing use of antibiotics is leading to unprecedented introductions of these compounds into our environment, the effects of which are under studied. At The University of Idaho, Dr. Lucas explores how naturally occurring and anthropogenically introduced antibiotics shape our soil ecosystems and the functions they perform and how they influence antibiotic resistance in the environment.
