Eliška Rejmánková's research lab focuses on the structure and functions of wetlands of California and Central America. Topics such as carbon transformations, nutrient uptake, and tolerance of selected species to increased levels of salinity are subject to field analyses and experiments.

She is part of a multidisciplinary team studying malaria vectors in Central America. The important conclusions resulting from this research demonstrated the need for combining traditional survey techniques with modern technology for developing successful predictions of disease outbreaks.
