Meet Marc Peipoch, New Principal Investigator

800 600 Stroud Water Research Center

Peipoch’s goal is to lead a productive, inclusive, and interdisciplinary research team: “In its very nature, the discipline of ecosystem ecology is a nexus for multiple perspectives and areas of expertise, which when put together can really tell us how ecosystems work and respond.”

Trajectories of Biofilm Succession and Recovery

The recovery of biological communities after disturbance has always been at the core of ecology as a discipline. While much is known about how interactive effects of flow velocity and…

Long-Term Research in Environmental Biology (LTREB): Trajectory for the Recovery of Stream Ecosystem Structure and Function During Reforestation

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Stream restoration in the United States is a multibillion-dollar industry. Yet long-term monitoring of its effectiveness is virtually nonexistent. Stroud Center scientists are studying restoration within White Clay Creek that…

Long-Term Research in Environmental Biology (LTREB): River Ecosystem Responses to Floodplain Restoration

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

After 25 years of litigation, ecological restoration is under way in the Upper Clark Fork River, Montana. The restoration includes removal of metal-laden floodplain soils, lowering of the floodplain to…

Evaluating How Conventional, Conservation, and Organic Farming Management Practices Enhance Soil Health and Improve Water Quality
