Departmental Research Areas:
Research focuses on identifying and reducing negative impacts of land use on natural and existing ecosystems. Current emphasis areas include: characterization of agrichemical loadings in surface water from different land uses, bioremediation/phytoremediation of agrichemicals in contaminated surface water, and evaluation of the environmental benefits of certain best management practices.
Programs are focused on water quality and its impacts on aquatic natural resources. Specific objectives include: 1) identification of how horticultural crop production impacts water quality, 2) identification of how negative water quality constituents affect non-target organisms, and 3) identification of strategies to lessen negative impacts on water quality.
