Research

My research examines the direct and indirect effects of environmental stress on aquatic communities.  My focal species are local and invasive amphibians, and I often work in ephemeral pond and stream habitats.  I examine how amphibians respond to multiple stressors, such as hydroperiod changes, temperature and ultraviolet radiation, and how these responses influence predators, competitors and pathogens.  Agricultural impacts on aquatic biodiversity and agro-ecology strategies are also a large part of my research program.
