Fish Ecology Group

960 720 Stroud Water Research Center

The Fish Ecology Group works to determine why fish in streams have the distributions they do. Our research includes field studies of fish movement, species composition and productivity; genetic studies of population structure; laboratory studies of tolerance limits to chemical, physical and biological factors; as well as mathematical modeling of population dynamics.
