In the algal ecology lab we examine how environmental conditions in freshwater ecosystems regulate algal community structure and function. Much of our research focuses on how processes related to ongoing climate change influence algal community composition in wetlands and the potential consequences for food web structure and ecosystem processes. Our lab also examines associations between environmental conditions and the occurrence of toxin-producing cyanobacteria within agriculturally dominated watersheds.
