Mechanisms of Biological and Ecological Response in Disturbed Aquatic Ecosystems

Summary

The objective of this research is to study and quantitatively describe the factors that influence the response of macroinvertebrates to both anthropogenic and natural environmental factors and assess the effects macroinvertebrates have on the physical, chemical, and biological quality of aquatic systems. This involves 1) studying macroinvertebrate distributions across a range of spatial and temporal scales representing a variety of environmental settings and influences, 2) identifying and measuring the effects of stressors that are macroinvertebrate-specific, 3) identifying the effects macroinvertebrates have on the physical, chemical, and biological environment, 4) developing and applying statistical models that logically and rigorously [...]
