I study the effects of hydropower facilities on aquatic resources in California rivers. The river breeding Foothill yellow legged frog, Rana boylii is a sentinel species in this effort.  I focus on flow velocity and water temperature as the key abiotic conditions influencing frog populations.  My approach combines field experiments, long term monitoring, and population modeling. The work is supported by the Public Interest Energy Research Program of the California Energy Commission.

Mike Limm, Ph.D. 2010

My primary interest is understanding how the physical characteristics of a drainage network influence the way carbon and nutrients move through and between terrestrial and aquatic communities. My current focus is on hydrologic and hydraulic controls on food webs and the influence of food web composition on ecosystem processes. I also like fish.

Master's

Maria Goodrich
My research is focused on the ecology of environmental biofilms. I am interested in understanding the strength and nature of interactions that take place among biofilm community members. Currently I am examining how bacterial-algal interactions in epilithic biofilms change according to light and nutrient availability at different drainage network positions in a stream ecosystem.
