Research conducted by my lab group is focused on ecology and restoration in aquatic systems including lakes, streams, coastal wetlands and the riparian ecosystems that connect them.1) the ecology and restoration of coaster brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis), 2) the ecology, restoration, and monitoring of aquatic ecosystems degraded by disturbances (e.g., fine sediment aggradation resulting from logging and roads, historical stamp sand deposition, introduced species); 3) biomonitoring of aquatic ecosystems, 4) watershed assessment of biotic and abiotic conditions necessary for the reestablishment of species such as coaster Brook Trout and Arctic Grayling, 5) effects of road deicer application on amphibian populations, and 6) the restoration of coastal wetland ecosystems, 7) understanding the invasion and control of Eurasian Watermilfoil. This work is founded on the goal to increase our understanding of the biology, ecology, and natural history of the organisms and systems of interest for their continued restoration and sustainability.
