My research program spans multiple levels of biological organization and modes of inquiry to advance the science and practice of conserving freshwater ecosystems. My principal interests include ecohydrology (dams, environmental flows), community ecology (freshwater fishes, amphibians, invertebrates), invasion biology (science and development of management tools), macroecology (testing and advancing the field of biogeography), climate change (impacts and adaptation strategies), and conservation biology (science and implementation at local and regional scales).
Scars from large mining operations are permanently etched across the landscapes of the world. The environmental damage and human health hazards that these activities create may be both severe and irreversible. Many...
