Overview of our Lab
Our group studies food webs in rivers and their watersheds. We are interested in how attributes and performances of species influence their effects in food webs, and how species interactions change under different environmental regimes.
Much of our field work takes place in the watershed of the South fork of the Eel River at the Angelo Coast Range Reserve in Mendocino County, CA. Portions of the south fork of the Eel River,and entire watersheds of several of its tributaries, are protected within the reserve. The Angelo Reserve is one of the 38 large protected natural reserves dedicated to university-level research and teaching in the University of California Natural Reserve System.
