My research program combines theoretical and empirical investigations of lake community ecology, predator-prey interactions, and fish ecology. My overriding interests lie in understanding the impact of spatial heterogeneity of biotic (e.g., prey availability) and abiotic (e.g., water temperature, disssolved oxygen) variables on individual organisms, population dynamics, and community structure and function. More generally, I am interested in the impact of heterogeneous landscapes on population- and community-level interactions; modeling of freshwater ecosystems (particularly with regard t
- Microbial Ecology
Course Summary: The course covers a number of general aspects of microbial ecology, including analytical methods,biogeochemical cycling of C, N, P and other essential elements, microbial communities and their roles in the marine, freshwater and terrestrial environments.
- Tropical Field Biology and Conservation
In order to achieve our mission, we have established four main areas of research:
1. Reproductive Ecology. We have study the reproductive biology of multiple species. In particular, we are interested in determining the outcrossing rates and its impact on the genetic structure of selected population.
