Professor and Chair
Message from the Chair
Freshwater ecosystem ecology with an emphasis on the structure and function of streams and wetlands, the roles of consumers in biogeochemical processes, ecological consequences of declining biodiversity, linkages between aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, disturbance ecology, stream and wetland restoration, and bioassessment of freshwater habitats.
