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.
