Healthy streams often support 200-300+ species of aquatic insects, crustaceans and other invertebrates, forming a rich and complex biological community.
This laboratory studies factors that affect the distribution and abundance of aquatic invertebrates, the functional role of invertebrates in stream and river ecosystems, and how these invertebrate communities respond to human activities in temperate and tropical watersheds.
