Mechanisms of Biological and Ecological Response in Disturbed Aquatic Ecosystems


My primary objective is to understand the function of the benthic community at various spatial scales with the goal of understanding and modeling the benthic community processes at the ecosystem level. Specifically, my goals are to (1) explore ecological and physical processes that are affected by the benthic community and that effect benthic community composition and function; (2) look at these processes at a variety of time scales (days to seasons and inter-annual time scales) so that hydrologic, climate, and exotic species effects on benthic communities and their ecosystems can be understood; (3) develop habitat and energetics models of dominant members of the benthic community that can be dynamically linked to models of hydrodynamics, [...]
