can quasi experiments occur in laboratories therefore having a low ecological validity?

No, a quasi experiment is a random event in which the researcher can't manipulate the independent variable (laboratory experiments should be able to manipulate the independent variables). Quasi experiments have high ecological validity since they're naturally occurring/aren't manipulated by researcher.

btw what’s the difference between natural, field and quasi??
field = manipulate the IV but not in lab and researcher measures DV ?
natural = IV naturally occurs and researcher just measure DV ?
quasi = IV occurs naturally and experiment focuses on this naturally occurring IV and measures DV?? IDK what quasi actually is ??

quasi is conducted in the natural environment with a naturally occurring IV but independent variable even though its set in the natural environment the IV is controlled
lab experiments are highly controlled so there's a clear cause and effect relationship being established
