Martin Lab

aquatic biology and ecology


The above word cloud was produced using recent publications. In general, my lab investigates stream ecology, community ecology, life-history, morphology, ontogeny, and conservation biology.  We are interested in stream dynamics and the relationship between aquatic organisms and environmental properties from small, local habitat scales to broad riverscape scales. Our research has spanned from gastropods to nutrients to algae to fish, with a focus on understanding functional relationships among multiple hierarchical levels (e.g., size, age, trophic position).
